Adult Programs

Adult Program Samples

Below are some samples of Adult programs we offer, including Weekend Retreats and Days of Recollection. We offer many other events that vary by theme and season, which you can view on our Event Calendar.

In addition to our Adult programs, we also offer Family Programs and Youth Programs.

Weekend Retreats

This type offers several conferences on a variety of spiritual themes in our daily life. Usually there are opportunities for the sacraments of Eucharist and Reconciliation along with a healing service. There also is the chance to speak with the retreat director(s) on a one to one level.

  • Advent Retreat
  • Palm Sunday Retreat
  • Embraced by God: Exploring the Spirituality of Disease Retreat
  • Brand New Day: Experiencing God through Nature Retreat
  • Directed Retreats: On a Directed retreat of four, five, six or eight days, you meet with a member of the preaching staff each day for a period of time and use the scriptures for your reflection throughout the days.

Days of Recollection

These retreats offer a shorter opportunity to get away and have time for reflection and prayer. These days/evenings usually have a conference and discussion and vary with meals or snack, etc.

  • Good Friday
  • The Labyrinth
  • Doing Well While Doing Good?
  • Dog is My Co-Pilot
