Regrettably our 2021 retreat is canceled
Here's more information from an email we sent out July 10
We hope this communication finds you and your family well. You're most likely here because you attended or have
heard positive reports about the Chi Alpha / College-Age Retreat 2019 at the Bongiorno Conference Center. We
rejoice in the wonderful time we had that weekend.
Unfortunately, we had to cancel in 2020 because of Covid-19. And now, we've regrettably made the decision to
hold off for 2021. Due to travel restrictions in place at several of our universities represented at retreat,
student groups like Chi Alpha most likely won’t be able to travel this fall. It is a difficult and disappointing
decision for us to have to make and we understand it is disappointing for many of you. We had so looked forward
to gathering and experiencing the Lord’s presence with all of you.
Many universities in our area are moving to have in-person classes so we're praying campus ministries will be
able to gather in person, many for the first time in a year and a half. Please pray that happens and our groups
grow and thrive so we'll be ready to gather in 2022, the Lord willing. And we will pray the same for churches
and young adult ministries represented at retreat.
We join you in praying for those who have been sick and those with family members and families who have suffered
because of this pandemic. And we look forward to gathering with you again, the Lord willing. Until then, we
continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers and pray for the Lord to do great things in your hearts.
