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 are revealed to you through other believers. In order to participate in an Emmaus Walk, you must be sponsored by a member of the Emmaus community. Sponsor and participant application forms may be found at For more information, contact:
