What is a retreat?

A retreat is a physical and spiritual pause from daily life. Although a retreat can be restful, it differs from a vacation in that its primary purpose is to grow deeper in relationship with God.

Why attend a retreat?

Retreats are an integral part of our Catholic faith. In fact, the Church encourages Catholics to make a retreat at least once per year. They provide a healthy opportunity to disconnect from the pressures of everyday life and reconnect with God.

What happens during a retreat?

Our weekend retreats begin with dinner on Friday evening and conclude with lunch on Sunday morning. The weekend typically includes presentations from the retreat leader and opportunities for Mass and confession, as well as ample free time for rest, prayer, and reflection.
