The 2019 – 2020 retreat season theme is…
Standing on Holy Ground: The Call to Holiness in Today’s World
“The Lord Jesus, the divine Teacher and Model of all perfection, preached holiness of life to each and every one of His disciples of every condition … ‘Be you therefore perfect, even as your heavenly Father is perfect.'” (Lumen Gentium 5)
Can anyone deny that we, as Christians – perhaps now more than in any other time in history – are urged to live our vocation to holiness?
Come and join us on ‘holy ground’ as we prayerfully explore what it means to be holy in today’s world.
Prayer for Passionist Retreatants
Jesus, you invited the apostles to come away with you to a deserted place and rest a while. Like your apostles, enable me to experience You on retreat — your suffering love and tender compassion. May I come to better know myself, to draw closer to you, and to thus be of better service to my brothers and sisters in the Church. Help me to listen attentively, to ponder prayerfully, to respond generously, and to benefit from the solitude and peace. Through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Sorrows, may I and my fellow retreatants leave our retreat as deeply committed Christians, better able to follow Your footsteps in all the opportunities and challenges of life. Amen.
“We have enjoyed the use of the Holy Name Retreat Center facilities for 5 years and we will continue to come back.”
“We enjoyed the quiet, the trees, and especially the beautiful courtyard. The Center is very accessible because it is centrally located in the city.”

“The staff is always flexible, available, willing to help out, and especially patient with a group of 50 boys. The kitchen gets rave reviews!”
