Our Men’s Catholic Retreats (Catholic in nature – open to all) are a powerful path to a deepened spiritual life and increased leadership abilities. Besides the four retreat conferences (talks) experience the classic retreat elements of Guided Prayer, unhurried Confession, Stations of the Cross, Holy Hour of Adoration, optional ‘one on one’ Spiritual Direction, Mass (with optional Anointing) hiking, and rest. Enjoy a full weekend of Chef Judy’s excellent ‘on site’ cooking too.
