This conference provides a valuable retreat for husband and wife; an opportunity to get away from distractions and focus on personal spirituality and that of their family. Meanwhile it provides abundant opportunity to reflect on diverse aspects of family life and prepare for the home school journey ahead.

From time to time, it has been suggested we offer a children’s program or provide childcare during the conference.  Such changes would significantly alter the conference and remove the retreat setting.  A different venue would be required, as Providence Renewal Centre is not designed to accommodate children.  An ideal family setting would be outdoors in summer, as provided by the annual Catholic Family Life Conference at Lac Ste. Anne. We believe that it is of great benefit to home schooling parents if they can access a retreat in March and a Catholic Family event in July.   

*A sitting room will be provided for nursing mothers with sound.
