SotS plans a Spiritual Renewal Retreat every few years.  Its purpose is the support of ministry for those who have participated in any of the ministry's programs.  The next Spiritual Renewal Retreat will be held September 13-16, 2018, at the Franciscan Spiritual Center in Aston, PA. 

At these 3-night events, a guest teacher and presenter is invited to lead a retreat on a topic pertinent to the spiritual life.  At these retreats, past participants have the opportunity to worship with and meet their fellow travellers from other programs and retreats, as well as to deepen their capacity for ministry through prayer and learning.

Below is a summary of our previous presenters.
