What to Expect

Retreat weekend activities include conferences, Mass, Reconciliation, prayer services, plenty of time for personal prayer and rest, and the opportunity to meet one-on-one with retreat team members. You may also spend time in our outdoor chapel, Beatitude trail, or other outdoor prayer spaces. While each retreat has a schedule that helps participants to focus on a central theme, retreatants participate only as much as they choose. No one is required to attend all the events scheduled during a retreat.

WHAT TO BRING

Rooms are either private or shared, at your request. Bed linens and towels are provided; please remember to bring personal toiletries, a bathrobe, walking shoes (if you think you’ll spend time outdoors), and other personal comfort items.
