To thank donors for supporting St Francis' 7th, 8th, and 9th Grade orientation programs at Camp DeSales, you and your family and friends are welcome to use Lawrence Lodge free of charge for a family reunion retreat.

You can prepare your own meals in the residential-size “snack” kitchen or make arrangements to purchase meals from one of the caterers familiar with our commercial kitchen. Donors of $2,000 or more are invited to use the Lodge for up to 4-days, 3-nights; donors of $3,000 or more for up to 6-days, 5-nights. The commercial kitchen and dishwasher are usually unavailable for family use.

Using the provided mattresses in the multi-purpose room, the Lodge can accommodate 40+ people. This lake-front property provides easy access to Vineyard Lake. Launch your boat at the county park across the lake and enjoy a week of swimming and water activities. This invitation includes use of the Lodge’s private dock, a lakeside campfire site, and Sacred Heart chapel. Mass and the Sacrament of Reconcilliation may be arranged through Fr. Jim McHugh.

Donations in support of St. Francis' orientation programs can be sent to: Fr. Ken McKenna, OSFS at St. Francis de Sales School • 2323 W. Bancroft St. • Toledo OH 43607. Please make check payable to St. Francis de Sales School.
