Time with God on Your Time Retreats offer the opportunity to step away from the busyness of ministry and pressures of daily life to reflect on the Catholic faith, prioritize spiritual wellness, inspire witness, and recharge one’s missionary activity by way of an engaging and easy to navigate format.
Finding a quiet place to retreat to from time to time helps us to refresh and recharge. Jesus was no exception; He needed to find times to slip away from the crowds and from His work so that He could reconnect with God the Father. We go on retreat so that we can come to know God more fully, know ourselves more fully and to have the strength to carry out what God might be asking of us.
