The report about him spread all the more, and great crowds assembled to listen to him and to be cured of their ailments, but he would withdraw to deserted places to pray.
Jesus' earthly ministry was very busy. In three short years He accomplished the most critical mission in the history of mankind, and yet our Lord still took time for retreat. By His example, we are shown a freeing reality—that we all need to take time away from the chaos and intensity of everyday life to retreat to a quiet place with our Heavenly Father.
Through our Alone with God Retreats, rediscover what it means to “be still and know that He is God” (cf. Psalm 46:10), by spending quiet time alone with our Lord in prayer. The weekend includes inspirational conferences, spiritual guidance, the sacraments, and rest.
Join us for one of our upcoming retreats to focus on this beautiful theme. In this year's retreats, our speakers will teach you about spiritual childhood through the writings of St. Therese of Lisieux and St. Faustina.
