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.
“Just don't wanna have to wait a whole year to come back again!!”
“Thank you for providing such a beautiful time and space to be alone with Our Lord. May the Passion of Jesus Christ be always in our hearts!”
"I was weak spiritually, mentally and physically. This retreat will start my real recovery."
"Loved this retreat. Felt closer to God. Dug deep within myself and learned more about Our Lord, the Passionists, and me. Cannot wait to return to this Holy Ground."
