Our visitors from Scotland & The USA
The retreat is facilitated by Catherine E. from Schotland and Fr. John from Phoenix Arizona (USA). The costs for their return flight to the Netherlands and their stay during the retreat will be paid by us. We are really super happy and grateful they are willing to spend there time and energy to share their experience, strength and hope with us here in the Netherlands.
To organize the retreat other costs are also incurred. You should think of costs for advertising, printing work and administration.
Profit or loss
We don’t know how much the total cost and revenue is going to be. We are organizing the retreat for the second time and aim for a minimum of 40 participants, our budget is based on that number of participants. In case there are more participants than expected more money is available, this amount will be donated to the organization of the CA World Convention in 2023. In the unlikely event that we have too few participants and thereby loss, we will discuss that during the retreat with the participants and see how we can carry that loss with all of them.
