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?

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.
