Other Center Programs:


Senior Priests Retreat - A Retreat for "Veterans of the Campaign"

An annual three or four day (optional) retreat for priests retired, semi-retired or ordained more than 40 years.

Fr. Dominic Maruca, S.J., Director

We hope that your schedule will permit you to accept our Lord's invitation to "Come aside to a place apart: rest awhile and be refreshed" (Mark 6, 31). Since a retreat may be described as a "Feast of Friendship" with Christ and with our fellow-priests, why not invite someone you think will enjoy this fraternal experience?

Cost

$350 for three days or $420 for (optional) four day retreat
