Marianist Retreat Center 2023 Retreat Opportunities

We invite you to prayerfully consider attending these events here at our retreat center that are open to the general public –

We consider our Inspire Monthly Marianist Prayer Gatherings to be mini-retreats, as they include praise and worship led by local musicians, inspiring messages from gifted presenters, group discussion, time for mingling, and snacks. These events are free, and all are welcome. Please note that we generally meet once every month, though days and dates vary so that we don’t disturb groups who have reserved our facility.

Our annual women’s retreat will take place March 10-12, 2023 and is being sponsored by St. Alban Roe Catholic Church: The Seasons of our Lives Through the Eyes of Mary will be a journey with the Most Blessed Mother through the Joyful, Sorrowful, Luminous, and Glorious mysteries, exploring how her faith, humility, and life of grace can inspire us as she guides us to her Son.

Hunger for God is the theme of our annual Good Friday Day of Recollection on Friday, April 7, 2023 from 9 am – 1 pm. Our presenter, Msgr. Michael Witt, will guide us through reflection and meditation focused on the symbolism of Biblical meals. Sacramental Reconciliation and Spiritual Direction will be offered, and this event will conclude with a light Lenten lunch in time for you to attend your own church’s Good Friday services.

On July 7-9, 2023 we are offering our 2nd annual Married Couple’s Retreat, which will be a great opportunity to spend some time away from it all to deepen your relationship with God while strengthening your marriage. Consider it a weekend-long date with your favorite person on the planet!

On Wednesday and Thursday, August 2 & 3, 2023 will be hosting our annual Retreat for Educators; a wonderful chance to Come, Pray, and Recharge! Our keynote presenter on Wednesday will be the always inspirational Fr. Joe Kempf, pastor of Most Sacred Heart Parish in Eureka, MO. We offer a one-day option and an overnight option. Wouldn’t this be a wonderful gift to give to your favorite educator?

We are thrilled to announce that the terrific trio of Steve Givens, Fr. Tom Santen, and Lucia Signorelli are coming back for our annual Advent Retreat on the weekend of December 8-10, 2023. You won’t want to miss this awesome weekend experience with these incredible retreat leaders who are also trained in the fine art of spiritual direction. Mark your calendar now, way before that busy holiday season comes back!
