Lakeshore hosts a number of retreats throughout the year.


The walk to Emmaus is an experience of Christian spiritual renewal and formation that begins with a three-day short course in Christianity. It is an opportunity to meet Jesus Christ in a new way as God’s grace and love is revealed to you through other believers. In order to participate in an Emmaus Walk you must be sponsored by member of the Emmaus community. Sponsor and participant application forms may be found at For more information, contact:
