    FAQs - Retreat Life

    What time does the retreat start and end?

    Echoes of Worth (for participants) begins Friday, January 12, 2018 at 5:30pm. The retreat concludes on Sunday, January 14, 2018 at 3pm.  

    Where do I meet the group for the retreat?

    The group will gather at Mission Springs Conference Center.  Park in the RV parking lot (as you come in over the gate look for the signs for Echoes of Worth). You will walk across the bridge toward the Worship Center (look for the registration table).

    What should I bring/pack with me?

    Please bring necessary clothes, toiletries, and outerwear for the weekend, a sleeping bag, pillow, flashlight for evenings, and reusable water bottle.  Should you desire, you are welcomed to bring a journal or personal Bible.
    Note: Clothes should be comfortable for sitting and moving around.  If participants are wearing clothing that is deemed too revealing or inappropriate teens will be asked to change.

    What is the staff to teen ratios?  What are the staff qualifications?

    Per diocesan requirements, there will be a staff to teen ratio of at least one staff member for every ten participants.  The coordinators team is made up of paid, parish staff members (Pastoral Staff, Directors of Religious Education, Youth Ministers) and volunteers.  The staff members are active members of their local parishes, trained in Theology of the Body by our in-house guru, over 21, and have met all diocesan safety training.  In general, they’re all around swell people!

    If I have a food allergy or dietary preference how and when do I communicate this?

    Please be sure to note any food allergies or dietary needs on your medical form portion of the Echoes of Worth Waiver Form at time of registration.

    What if I have medications I need to bring?

    All medication should be brought to the retreat in a labeled Ziploc bag with clear dosage instructions.  The medicine must be given to the retreat coordinators at time of check-in.  Medication & dosage requirements must be noted at time of registration on your medical form.

    Is there a number I can call in case of emergency while my teen is on retreat?


    Yes, 831-335-9133 is the main number to the retreat center.  This number should be used during business hours (8am – 5pm).  After hours emergencies can be called in to Stephanie Dockendorf, Operations Coordinator, 408-621-1765.  Note: There is VERY limited cell phone service at the retreat center.  Last year little to no phone calls were received, however text messages were able to come through.  Emailing Stephanie@echoesofworth.com will be received as there is wifi access at the retreat center and will be monitored throughout the weekend.  Also note, this is personal cell phone, please do not use for general retreat questions.  This number should only be used for emergencies on-retreat.

    Our Mission

    To change the perceptions of a society that thinks abortion is an answer. Abortion does violence to women and to their children, both physically and emotionally. We deserve better than abortion.

    We intend to establish a new West Coast tradition of celebrating life and we’re calling for solidarity among women and all people of good will in affirming human life.

    Abortion harms women and men; it divides families and society. Women–and all people–deserve better than abortion.

    We strive to shed light on all issues of life, but particularly to change hearts hurt by the violence of abortion.

    Life is the best and only good choice!
