Sons of Joseph Retreat for Men

To request a sons of St. Joseph Retreat for your group, please contact us:

A father/son/grandfather overnight retreat inspired by the life of Jesus and Joseph

We don’t hear a single word from Joseph, and he only shows up in 16 verses in the New Testament, yet his impact on our faith, on Christ, is profound. And Jesus must have had a tremendous impact on Joseph and his relationship with God. On this overnight retreat we will explore questions that deal with the impact of the Father/Son/Grandfather relationship, what we can learn from Joseph’s relationship with Jesus and what role does prayer and service play in this unique relationship. We will also have a lot of fun!

The retreat consists of short talks, games, activities, a campfire, a nighttime walk, prayer, music, outside time, Mass and time for a service project. Son needs to be going into Grades 1-8.

A highlight of our last Sons of St. Joseph Retreat day was the construction of a bench (pictured above) by each Father/Son team. The 12 benches are now scattered throughout MRCC’s 120 acres.
