Spirituality Retreat

Friday, June 26th - June 28th

Fr. Tom Bonacci, CP 

The Second Vatican Council invited the people of the Church to engage the peoples of the World in the pursuit of the true, the good, and the beautiful.  We live in a time when the Faith Traditions of the World have the obligation to lead the World in the way of peace.  Our weekend retreat is an introduction to the Faith Traditions of humankind as we discern the many gifts each Tradition brings to the pursuit of peace and harmony in our World.

Thursday, July 2nd - July 9th, 2015

This retreat is a concentrated experience of God in prayer under the guidance of a director. The focus is on your personal union with the Lord through solitude, silence, prayerful attention and listening to the Lord. Your room, the beautiful grounds and the chapel become your personal hermitage. Meals are taken in silence. Daily private meetings with a trained spiritual director will assist you in discerning the nudges and movements of God’s Spirit.


Please note, this retreat may not be right for everyone. We ask you to please contact us by telephone or email to arrange a meeting with our Retreat Director, Carol Forrest, before your registration can be accepted. Thank you and bless you.  More info available on flyer link below.

Was It Not Like Fire Burning Within Us?

Friday, July 17 to Sunday, July 19, 2015


Presented by: Fr. Tom Bonacci, CP

In this year of preparation for the conclusion of the Synod on the Family, our Retreat for Married Couples will focus on the power of self-giving love to transform the World.  This love is symbolized in the fire of God’s radiance reflected in creation and the reality of human love.  Our Retreat program will probe the dynamics of the fire of love as we grow into the full stature of God’s image.


Marriage is a sacramental ministry by which the love of God manifested in Jesus is communicated by virtue of the Holy Spirit.  


Marriage offers the World of tragedy and heartbreak the hope born of the courage of two people to love one another unconditionally.  Come!  Celebrate with us the fire of this love.Registration is $250 per couple.
