An Ignatian, Silent Weekend Retreat for Couples
Love thrives when it's cultivated. Spend some time tending to your love relationship with dramatized reflections, engaging rituals, and preaching that is pointed and practical. The semi-silent retreat also includes plenty of time for quiet reflection, structured conversation with your spouse, daily Mass, and the opportunity for private consultation.
Groups Attending: Couples
