Our Board of Directors

The preaching of weekend retreats is the heart and core of ministry at St. Paul of the Cross Passionist Retreat and Conference Center. It is the foundational ministry to the Center and has continued and expanded for more than 65 years. The members of our Retreat Team bring a variety of perspectives on the retreat theme and the Gospel message. This approach enables retreatants, who come from various backgrounds, to relate to presenters with whom they may personally identify.

Our team members include Passionist priests from Holy Cross Province and a married lay woman with advanced degrees in theology. Each Team member is qualified to preach conferences, preside at liturgical services and conduct individual pastoral counseling.

Experience has proven over the years this Team approach to weekend retreats has responded most fully to the spiritual needs and expectations of those who come to St. Paul’s to be refreshed in the grace and presence of God.

Come experience the St. Paul’s difference!
