When you say YES to God, that's not giving up on what your dreams are, its waking up understanding what your dreams were always meant to be

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

Vancouver (Canada)

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

Rockville Centre

Just do it.

Fr. Joe O'Connor

Syracuse

The best retreat I’ve been on. Wise conferences, challenging spiritual direction, powerful silent prayer. What more could I ask for?

Fr. Wojtek Kuzma,

Hamilton (Canada)

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

Ogdensburg

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

Phoenix

The silence was life-changing, the encounter with God…profound! I would highly recommend this retreat.

Fr. Luke Strand

Milwaukee

Silence is golden! You NEED this!

Fr. Matthew Gerlach

Tulsa

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

Dallas

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

St. Vincent de Paul Regional Seminary

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
