Passionist Preached Weekend Retreat

Letting His presence encounter us, longing for space, time, solitude and peace.

A weekend retreat experience centered around an annual theme designed to focus on some aspect of one’s life journey and relationship with God. In keeping with the Passionist Charism, retreatants will be invited to (re)discover the mystery of the Cross and Passion of Christ as foundational to healthy living. We invite you to join us in the stillness and the quiet for periods of listening to retreat leaders interwoven with silence for reflection, opportunities for prayer, Sacraments, sharing and experiences of God’s presence.

2020-2021 Retreat Theme: 

I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say…

We find ourselves living in unprecedented times. Navigating a pandemic throughout the world; facing another polarized election year; unemployment; social distancing; masks; racial unrest…and all the uncertainty, anxiety and confusion surrounding us. The landscape of our reality is ever-changing and we search to discover our “new normal.”

The stillness of quarantine causes us to pause – the pause makes room for us to notice – What is important? Who am I called to be?  What might God be asking of me in the here and now? How do I nurture relationships and honor social distancing? How can I be creative in connecting with those dear to me? How do I nourish my soul?

For Christians, Scripture provides the “key” – the key that opens the door to our relationship with God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit! Scriptures connect our stories and open our hearts to the very voice and presence of the Divine allowing us to discern the Voice of Jesus.  What have I heard Him say? How do I assimilate what I heard and continue on the path to wholeness – the path that leads to the Kingdom?

This retreat experience invites you into the quiet space where God can “till the ground” of your heart, to better discern what you have heard The Voice of Jesus Say…

Weekend retreats begin on Friday afternoon with check-in at 4:30 pm and dinner at 6:30. The retreats conclude on Sunday morning after Mass (finished before noon.)
