Men Invited to Recharge their Batteries, Refocus their Lives at 11/15-11/16 Retreat

Whether they’re worried about household finances, relationships with a spouse or family member, job stability or health related issues, men are never far away from a myriad of stress triggers in today’s frenetically paced life.

Those interested in setting aside those distractions and taking a more objective look at their lives are invited to attend, “A Retreat for Men: Finding Truth in a World of Lies, Political Correctness and Fake News.” The event runs from 3 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15 through 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16 at Christ the King Center (575 Burton Rd) in Greenwich, N.Y.

“We’ve hosted many retreats for women before, but this is the first time we’ve held one just for men,” said Retreat Coordinator Fr. Mark Chesnut. “Men don’t offer themselves time to recharge, refocus and reorient themselves to what’s truly meaningful in their lives. The purpose of this event is to give them a short amount of time where they can get away and re-examine their place in their families to become better human beings and more sensitive in an active, positive sense, to those around them.”

Stan Key, president of the Francis Asbury Society, will lead three sessions designed to help attendees refocus their decision making skills, as they seek to live a more abundant life. A former senior pastor at Loudonville Community Church, Key speaks frequently at conferences, retreats, camps and churches both in the U.S. and abroad.

“The program includes interactive group sessions, teaching, socializing between meals, as well as quiet, contemplative time for men to explore our expansive 612-acre property here in the rolling hills of Washington County,” Chesnut added.

The event fee, which includes dinner on Friday night and breakfast and lunch on Saturday, is $89 through Nov. 1 and $99 thereafter. For more information and to view various lodging options, please visit or call (518) 692-9550.
