The Lord loves to reveal himself to us. Going on a retreat provides a great amount of space for the Lord to speak to our hearts.
Retreats are available through the Diocese of St. Cloud, through private organizations, and through our parishes. Examples include: TEC, Castaway, Steubenville, Koinonia, Engaged Encounter, Marriage Encounter, and Rachel's Vineyard. We also like to host an annual retreat at our parishes for adults who are perhaps too busy to drive longer distances for a retreat.
Check below for new listings and our Calendar for upcoming retreats available to you.
