A retreat is a special time to break from the usual activities of life, a time to reflect and to ask oneself: How is life going? Where is my life headed? Where is God in all this? It is a time to assess the present and make resolutions for the future, and to discern how to apply those resolutions in a practical way to one’s daily life.

Weekend retreats include daily Mass, time for personal prayer, reflections and talks on central themes related to living a Christian life within one's personal circumstances. There are times for confession and personal spiritual direction.
