"The retreat center is a safe haven to escape from everyday life... to reflect, gather your thoughts and be at peace. When you leave the center you're a better person for the remaining 51 weeks of the year."

Pope Francis

2014-15 Parish Retreat Theme:

Living the Joy of the Gospel 

Pope Francis, in his challenging Apostolic Exhortation, The Joy of the Gospel, has called the Universal Church to a renewed spirit of evangelization “A joy ever new, a joy which is shared.” Our retreat for the 2014-2015 season is inspired by this timely document. Each person in the Church is charged by virtue of our Baptism to commit themselves to the proclamation of the joy of the Gospel which is no less than the friendship we have in Christ. This proclamation is based primarily on our witness to one another and our service to the people of the world.

Retreats feature inspiring preached conferences, Eucharist on Saturday and Sunday, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, private conferences with staff members, specialized gatherings on specific themes, and ample personal time for prayer, reading and rest.
