It can be hard as a Religious Educator or a volunteer to find time for reflection, continuing education and networking with colleagues. Fortunately, a week on Star Island provides all three of these, and gives you time with your family as well! Our programs have included Renissance Modules, workshops that give credit toward toward credentialing, and workshops that include vital and useful infomormation for anyone working with faith formation in congregations.

Some of what other Religious Educator have said about LRE Week:
- “Because of the high caliber of religious educators that attend LRE week, I learn more for my RE program during conversations at meals, walks, and programming than I do at GA. I come to LRE week because it allows me to connect with my deepest self The atmosphere on the island is relaxed, creative and inclusive. I find that this environment encourages you to stretch in ways that surprise you.” -Robin Pugh, Director of Lifespan Religious Education at the Unitarian Universalist Church at Washington Crossing.
- “While Star Island itself has become one of the most meaningful places on Earth to me, LRE Week in particular is something I almost feel I can’t live without. This is the one week each year that I get to sit on the porch, relaxed, rocking away with colleagues, discussing our work together. Whether processing information from a shared workshop we are taking, or problem solving an issue we face in our congregations, it is incredibly valuable time, and lasts me all year.” -Lynne Weygint, Director of Religious Education, First Parish Church in Waltham
