Our Making All Things New retreat will provide you with plenty of tools to improve your health, deepen your faith, and enjoy life to the fullest. Our healthy living retreat is rooted in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, which focuses on a whole person approach to being well: body, mind, and spirit. This retreat is perfect for anyone who is ready to make some changes in their life, especially in the areas of prayer, diet and exercise. The New Year is a perfect time to make these important changes too!
Our retreat will include segments on prayer, exercise, and diet. Healthy selections will be offered during our meals. Although we recommend the overnight option for a more complete retreat experience, we understand this isn’t always possible. This is a commuter option only and includes dinner on Friday, as well as lunch and dinner on Saturday. The retreat will begin with an orientation session at 5pm. Guided by Paul Gallagher.
