Star Island LRE Conference

Star IslandThe Star Island Lifespan Religious Education conference is an inspirational week-long experience combining professional development, spiritual renewal, a Unitarian Universalist faith community, and Star Island magic. LRE Week offers programming to meet both the professional and personal needs of those new to and experienced in lifespan faith development.

While something of a”working” conference, this week provides ample opportunities for personal rejuvenation; a chance to model and experience the joys of our faith community, time to relax in solitude, and also time to share the company of new and old friends and colleagues.

There are programs and special events for all ages, plenty of recreational activities, and always something fun to do!
