Our Mission

The Mary & Joseph Retreat Center’s mission is to provide an environment of serenity, prayer, and natural beauty. Through sponsored programs and hospitality, the retreat center creates opportunities for the personal and spiritual growth of each person who comes to these sacred grounds. Our hosted program invites outside groups to hold their own educational, religious, corporate,
12-Step, or other events at our center.

These are the retreats and events created by the Center and listed in Our Program Guide. See these events on the following pages Day Retreats, Weekend Retreats, Long Retreats & Special Programs
