Retreat to the Rock
This event was founded in 1989 by Roseann Rossi and Pat Picco, two Christian women in the Illinois Valley who had a desire to use our beautiful Starved Rock State Park for the glory of God. They invited several women from various Christian churches to pray for guidance and come to meetings in their homes if they felt led to be involved in forming an interdenominational Christian women’s retreat. Thus, Retreat to the “Rock” was birthed. Twelve ladies from various churches and backgrounds prayed, visited other retreats and called upon Winsome Women retreat from Winona Lake, Indiana to help them get started. Ethel Anderson, an officer from that retreat, was the first speaker for Retreat to the “Rock”. Judy Dagraedt, a local woman with a beautiful music ministry led the music. The twelve founding members of the Retreat to the “Rock” board met and prayed fervently for the retreat, placing ten dollars a meeting in an offering to get the group started. From this humble beginning, God has used this retreat for years to proclaim His Word, bring salvation to the lost, and encourage and comfort His people. The retreat offers Bible based teaching, a variety of workshops, praise and worship, a prayer room, warm fellowship, an abundance of delicious food, and the wonderful ambiance and luxury of Starved Rock Lodge. Many women return year after year, using the retreat for a reunion of friendships, girls’ night out or just good old fashioned R&R. All leave blessed.
