2024 Monthly Preached Retreats

Eucharistic Revival
Friday, April 12th at 5:30pm – Sunday, April 14th at 4:30pm
Jesus invites us to return to the source and summit of our faith in the celebration of the Eucharist. The National Eucharistic Revival, which culminates in Indianapolis this July, is a movement to restore understanding and devotion to this great mystery by helping us renew our worship of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. Join us as we delve deeply into the powerful reality that is the Eucharist. Jesus, the Lamb of God, sacrificed so that we may have life, brings us himself in the heavenly bread of the banquet that takes place in heaven and on earth at the same time. Come worship our Eucharistic Lord with expectant faith during this enriching retreat.

In the School of the Holy Spirit
Friday, May 17th at 5:30pm – Sunday, May 19th at 4:30pm
The Holy Spirit is essential to our Christian life and his help is needed for us to progress on the path on which God leads us. Join us as we use Jacques Philippe’s book, “In the School of the Holy Spirit” as a guide to help us get to know the Sanctifier of our souls. Come learn to be more attentive to the movements of the Holy Spirit in your life. When we follow his promptings, we become holy like Mary did, by always saying yes to God.

Heart of the Redeemer Silent Retreat
Friday, June 7th at 5:30pm – Sunday, June 9th at 4:30pm
Devotion to the Sacred Heart is a response to the tremendous love of Christ as symbolized by his human heart pierced on Calvary. Join us as we delve into the beauty of Timothy O’Donnell’s book the “Heart of the Redeemer” which sheds penetrating light on this key practice. The veneration of our Lord’s Heart honors Christ as the source and substance of our redemption and is no ordinary devotion. It a practice that is rendered to God alone. For the Heart of Christ is the focal point through which everything passes to the ultimate center in the Father.

Be Healed
Friday, July 5th at 5:30pm – Sunday, July 7th at 4:30pm
“Somewhere deep inside each one of us is a burning desire to finally become the person God created us to be.” Do you suffer from spiritual or emotional wounds that are keeping you from reaching that goal? We will be using Catholic therapist Bob Schuchts’s book “Be Healed” as a means of spiritual, emotional, and physical healing. Come, be guided on your journey of healing. His trusted process for finding inner peace and healing is boldly Christ-centered and maintains focus on the person of Jesus as “the life-giving and ever-present physician of our souls.”

C.S. Lewis: The Problem of Pain
Friday, August 16th at 5:30pm – Sunday, August 18th at 4:30pm
“If God is good and all-powerful, why does he allow his creatures to suffer pain?” Join us alongside C.S. Lewis as he offers answers and shares his hope and wisdom to help heal a world hungering for a true understanding of human nature. Come be transformed by the message that God can use evil and pain to mold us and make us into who we each were made to be. This is God’s love. And it is in this that we can start to give a response to “the problem of pain.”

Journey to Joy Silent Retreat
Friday, September 13th at 5:30pm – Sunday, September 15th at 4:30pm
How can joy and sorrow go together? In contemplating the seven sorrows of the Mother of Jesus, we can discover what so many Christians over the centuries have found: in Mary’s sorrows we find a model of faith and how to discover happiness in the midst of suffering. A way to transform sadness into gladness? Discovering Mary’s method of converting sorrow to joy is an important step taken in the spiritual life. We will be using Fr. Daniel Brandenburg’s book, “Journey to Joy” to find the meaning, peace, and happiness for which we thirst.

Behold, an Angel of the Lord
Friday, October 18th at 5:30pm – Sunday, October 20th at 4:30pm
When God through the incarnation became man in Jesus Christ, the relationship between humans and angels changed. Angels still have the superior nature, but we have been given the grace of a more intimate friendship with God, a sharing in God’s divinity, through grace, that even the angels don’t enjoy. During this retreat we will be using RC Spirituality’s retreat guide on “Invisible Allies” and Fr. Pascale Parente’s book, “The Angels: In Catholic Teaching and Tradition” to explore how God wants the angels to be involved in our Christian journey, and what role they are called to play in the dramatic history of our salvation.

A Spiritual Road Map to Eternity
Friday, November 1st at 5:30pm – Sunday, November 3rd at 4:30pm
Join us for the Feast of All Saints as we journey with Fulton Sheen as he draws out a spiritual road map to eternity. It is often unpopular to be a true Christian today, and living the faith can be a struggle amid the disorders of our times. Walk with us as we explore the truths about heaven and hell that resound in Sheen’s book, “Go to Heaven,” breathe new life into your understanding of faith, tolerance, love, prayer, suffering, and death. Come be encouraged in the faith and the way to heaven which we can chose now.

Advent Silent Retreat
Friday, December 6th at 5:30pm– Sunday, December 8th at 4:30pm
Prepare your hearts for the coming of the Lord this Advent as we explore the essence and promise of the Advent Season and gain a new understanding of the coming of Christ.
