TWO ADDITIONAL REGIONAL RETREATS:  CALIFORNIA AND TEXAS

Every year  the Alcuin Fellowship conducts retreats for school faculties in various regions of the country. We try to keep the size manageable (less than 35 teachers) in order to encourage great conversation and fellowship.

This year we will be hosting three regional retreats:  one in Santa Clarita, CA; one in the Waco, Texas, and one in Wheaton, IL.
