The event kicked off with a warm "Meet & Greet" activity, allowing fathers and sons to connect with one another and foster a sense of camaraderie among the attendees. Following the introductions, a prayer was offered, setting a peaceful and reflective tone for the day ahead.

One of the highlights of the retreat was "The Legacy Link: Father-Son Q&A" session. Fathers and sons had the chance to engage in meaningful conversations, sharing wisdom, experiences, and insights. This interactive session not only deepened their understanding of one another but also strengthened their bond as they explored their roles and responsibilities within the family.

The retreat continued with "Igniting Hearts, Building Bonds" by Father Jeremy Zipple. This inspiring session provided guidance on nurturing and cherishing the sacred bond between fathers and sons. Father Zipple's words resonated with the participants, emphasizing the importance of open communication, trust, and support in building strong relationships.

Father-Son bonding time followed the talk, allowing fathers and sons to engage in activities that promoted teamwork, cooperation, and fun. It was a precious moment for fathers and sons to create lasting memories and enjoy each other's company.

The retreat also featured a session titled "Journeying Together: Fathers and Sons" by Father William McCormick. Father McCormick shared his insights on the journey of fatherhood, encouraging fathers to be present, compassionate, and supportive in their sons' lives. His words empowered the participants to embrace their role as fathers and mentors.

To add a touch of creativity, the retreat offered a "Sip & Paint" session by Ms. Twist. Fathers and sons had the opportunity to express their artistic side and create beautiful artwork together, fostering a sense of collaboration and self-expression.

The day concluded with a Mass, providing a spiritual and reflective ending to the retreat. Fathers and sons gathered in prayer, expressing gratitude for the shared experiences and the strengthening of their bond.
