This retreat is a treasure. Unparalleled spiritual direction in a beautiful setting: I recommend this retreat to any vocation director in need of some rest and quality time with The Lord.Fr. Bryan Duggan
No doubt the quiet, prayer, conferences, and spiritual direction help to reestablish and connect my priesthood back to the Source in a new more profound way. Awesome retreat !!Fr. Joe Fitzgerald
Just do it.Fr. Joe O'Connor
The best retreat I’ve been on. Wise conferences, challenging spiritual direction, powerful silent prayer. What more could I ask for?Fr. Wojtek Kuzma,
Every day we talk to people about what the Holy Spirit is doing in their lives. How good to get away and really see what He’s doing in ours!”Fr. Brian Stitt
The work we do is of the utmost importance, but nothing is more important than our relationship with the Lord. This time of brotherhood in silence with the Lord is a blessing. Here we receive more from the Lord so that we can live out of a fullness as sons, priests and as those who walk with seminarians in their discernment.Fr. Paul Sullivan
The silence was life-changing, the encounter with God…profound! I would highly recommend this retreat.Fr. Luke Strand
Silence is golden! You NEED this!Fr. Matthew Gerlach
Conferences are directed towards the specific spirituality of not only priesthood but Vocation Directions. Direction is a beautiful experience with experienced, faithful and knowledgable directors. This is my second year and I couldn’t imagine going on a different retreat.Fr. Edwin Leonard
The talks, the time for meditation, and the individual direction were tremendous gifts to strengthen me for the Ministry of priestly formation.Msgr. David Toups
This retreat has been hugely important for me two years in a row. The quality of direction is unparalleled, and I have experienced the Lord’s love and healing in powerful new ways. I highly recommend this retreat!Fr. Jonathan Raia
