Domestic Church Retreat for Married Couples
Couples are invited to take advantage of this simple, beautiful gift of formation, accountability, and true, organic growth in love and faith within their Sacrament, building and strengthening the foundations of the Domestic Church.
New, alternate format: 2 days at a host parish, with no overnight stays.
St. James Parish will be hosting a 2-Day Retreat for married couples on Saturday, October 22nd (9:00am-8pm) and Sunday, October 23rd (12:30-5pm). This retreat is first and foremost a chance to encounter Christ together as a married couple and to enrich your spiritual life together. It is also an introduction to the Domestic Church movement which provides ongoing support and formation for married couples. The opportunity to participate in this ongoing formation will be discussed during the retreat.
This has been such a great benefit to our marriage in the last 2 years since we began to meet in a Circle group and grow in our practice of the 7 Promises. We have grown in our prayer life together, learned how to communicate better, and are closer to each other than ever before. We have also formed some great new friendships through this movement.” -Dino and Cathy Durando
$75 per couple* -includes morning snacks, lunch, and dinner on Saturday, and lunch on Sunday. Scholarship funding is available. NO couple will be turned away due to financial need.
