Come to the Water
A Lasallian Retreat

July 17 – 22, 2022
La Salle Center at Noble Street, Narragansett, RI

This retreat is filled. Please contact with questions and interest.

From the early days of the Institute, Saint John Baptist de La Salle provided a place for the early Brothers to rest, pray, and renew. Today, Lasallians are invited to gather in the beautiful oceanside town of Narragansett for that same kind of opportunity. You are invited to Come to the Water to renew your connection with God and restore your peace. Sabbath time can be as unplanned and open as you seek. Time to gather for reflection and prayer will be offered during the week, and spiritual direction is offered by request.

Spiritual accompaniment will be provided by:

Come away all of you to a quiet place and rest awhile
— Mark 6:31

“In response to a variety of crises, De La Salle purchased property outside of Paris, at a place called Vaugirard, and brought all the Brothers there for an extended retreat wherein he rekindled their fervor.”
