Pre and Post Retreat Excursions

More Fun and Fellowship

Join fellow retreatants for fun, fellowship and sight-seeing before and after the retreat! Events are being hosted by local volunteers on Thursday evening, July 25th and Friday, July 26th, as well as on Sunday afternoon/evening, July 28th. Please check back for details on hotel accommodations for Sunday evening, July 28th.

Plan to come early and stay late to do a little sight-seeing in downtown Chicago and enjoy some of the “Windy City’s” summer festivals and activities! This will be a great opportunity to get to know new friends prior to the weekend and spend a little more time after the retreat with the new friends you’ve made.

Some places and things we might see and do – or that you can also plan to visit on your own:

  • Visit Navy Pier
  • Go on a river architecture tour of Chicago’s downtown historic buildings
  • Participate in “Chicago’s Best Street Festival of the Summer “
  • Walk through Millennium Park and take a picture with “The Bean”
  • Enjoy the view from the top the historic Sears Tower or the Hancock Building
  • Visit the Art Institute of Chicago
  • Tour historic Wrigley Field
  • Take a mini-pilgrimage to some of Chicago’s beautiful old churches

More details and sign-ups coming soon!
