Retreats for Educators, Dioceses & Parishes

Retreats for Educators

In 2018, Gwen Adams began developing a retreat for educators called the “Come Away and Rest Awhile Retreat.”

Many features of this retreat made their way into a graduate course titled “THEO-722 Catholic Education,” which Adams taught during the Summer 2019 term at the Augustine Institute. Adams offers this course again in summer 2020.

In Fall 2019, the Archdiocese of Seattle brought Adams to beautiful Washington State to present to over eighty school leaders at the annual Christ in the Classroom Leadership Retreat.

Adams has worked with friends at Cana Academy, Trinity Schools, Immaculata Classical Academy, and others. She is a teacher and continues to help other teachers and school leaders.
