Frequently Asked Question:

Do I have to be Catholic to come on this retreat?

While this is a Catholic retreat, you don’t have to be Catholic to join.  The community environment on all our retreats is always welcoming, reverent, loving and fun!  So no matter where you are on your own faith journey, you are always welcome.  We will offer opportunities for bonding with friends, reflection, conversations with Jesuits and chaplains, the sacrament of reconciliation, and Mass.
