2022 Monthly Preached Retreats
Responding to Relativism
Friday, July 8th at 5:30pm – Sunday, July 10th at 4:30pm
For many people, personal preference has replaced morality as a guide in how to live. We will look at the Church’s moral teaching as our guide to a happy and fulfilling life and discover why being led by personal preference takes us away from God’s plan for us. Using Edward Sri’s book, “Who am I to Judge: Responding to Relativism with Logic and Love”, we will learn how Catholic morality is all about love, how making a judgment is not judging a person’s soul, and how, in the words of Pope Francis, relativism wounds people and is the spiritual poverty of our times.
Consecration to Mary Retreat
Friday, August 12th at 5:30pm – Sunday, August 14th at 4:30pm
Come spend a weekend dedicated to Mary and make/renew your Marian Consecration on the Vigil of the Feast of the Assumption! Don’t forget to start your 33-day renewal preparation on July 13th. There will be Marian conferences, a special Consecration to Mary Ceremony and Celebration, Eucharistic Adoration, Mass, Confession and time for private prayer, reflection and walking. Day Guests are also welcome for the Ceremony and Celebration on August 14th.
Encountering One’s Deepest Center
Friday, September 9th at 5:30pm – Sunday, September 11th at 4:30pm
The goal of contemplation is an encounter with God in our depths. Join us as we delve into the teachings of the Cloud of Unknowing which takes us to that center and Abandonment to Divine Providence by Jean-Pierre de Caussade which shows us how to surrender to God by trusting Him from our core.
Friday, October 14th at 5:30pm – Sunday, October 16th at 4:30pm
What are the foundational beliefs that take us into the heart of what it means to be a Christian? Journey with us as we enter into the thought of C.S. Lewis as he explains and defends the most basic beliefs of Christians, hoping to persuade others to come to our Lord. Come immerse yourself in the unequaled opportunity for believers and non-believers alike to hear this powerful apologetic for the Christian faith.
Gratefulness: The Heart of Prayer
Friday, November 4th at 5:30pm – Sunday, November 6th at 4:30pm
Living a life of gratefulness is a life that brings us into the place where joy, prayer and praise are the atmosphere in which we live and move and have our being. Join us as we learn how awareness and the ability to see into things, help us find the grace that awaits us in everyday life through the intermingling of our reality and God’s grace.

New Year Spiritual Reflection and Planning Retreat
Friday, January 6th at 5:30pm – Sunday, January 8that 4:30pm – 2023
Join us for our Annual New Year’s Spiritual Reflection and Planning Retreat. Set aside time this year to focus on spiritual growth by creating growth goals and devising steps to reach goals. The structure of the retreat will allow ample time for you to do work on your plan. We will be providing resources and ideas to incorporate in your plan. There will be time to brainstorm and share our plans with others as well as time to meet with a spiritual director if you prefer to speak on an individual basis. Please bring your own personal items that will aid in this process such as: bible, notebook, agenda, journal, catechism, laptop (if this helps you plan better), etc.
