***An important message regarding meetings and retreats as affected by Covid-19 precautions.

Dear Mary & Joseph Retreat Center Community Members:

Mary & Joseph Retreat Center is open effective June 16 and is following local directives for health and safety. While numbers are limited, we do have capacity available for groups to hold both day and overnight retreats. Please call to check for availability, and to find out more about our new guidelines

Centering Prayer Group
Centering Prayer is a practice to foster our relationship with God. It is a movement beyond conversation to communion with God. Come and pray with us. The Mary & Joseph Retreat Center Centering Prayer group will meet on Zoom on the 2nd & 4th Wednesdays each month from 7:30 to 9pm (PST). Contact Herb Kaighan to register. Donation.

Gratefulness Gatherings
Experience, deepen, and share the power of living gratefully. Gratefulness Gatherings are an opportunity to cultivate a space where we can explore grateful living as an orientation to life. All are welcome to join our monthly Gratefulness Gatherings online via Zoom. We will meet on the 3rd Thursday each month from 4:00-5:30 pm (PST). Contact Christine Sanchirico for more information and to register. Donation.

Spiritual Direction
A spiritual director journeys with you as a companion, as you deepen your relationship with God. We will offer a limited number of online sessions this summer. Contact Christine Sanchirico for more information. Donation.

Wednesday Readers Book Club
We discuss a new book each month in light of our own spirituality, and are meeting online until further notice. We meet on one Wednesday each month at 4 pm (PST) online. Contact Sydne Jongbloed for dates, book titles and to register. Donation.
Please stay in touch! We hope to add more online programs soon.
