Retreat Experiences that make a difference
It is ARC’s goal to offer cancer retreat experiences without financial barriers. All funds generated through fundraising events, facility rentals and generous donations, help to keep our facility beautiful and increase the programs that we offer. Most importantly, these funds help us to continue to offer our cancer retreats to participants free of charge. We understand the financial burden that can often accompany a cancer diagnosis and we strive to provide a place of healing that does not add to that burden.
We are grateful to everyone that donates their energy, time, and money to support the Abbey Retreat Centre. We make every effort to keep operating costs low and focus on allocating the funds we receive to support people on their cancer journey. We need your help and support to continue to offer our retreats to participants free of charge.
