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 Retreat Center and listed in Our Program Guide. See these events on the following pages Day Retreats, Weekend Retreats, Long Retreats & Special Programs

Healing Retreat: “I am the vine, you are the branches”
Michael Barry, SSCC
7:00 pm Friday, October 3 to 1:30 pm Sunday, October 5

The retreat is a call to a life in Christ. It is a journey through woundedness to life in Christ by discovering the life giving power of your own personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is a recognition of the source of life and our growing in the source. Active with SCRC in Southern California, Fr. Barry leads retreats and lectures worldwide on healing & charismatic spirituality.

Fr. Michael Barry

St. Francis of Assisi: Face to Face
David Hoover
Sunday, October 5, 3:00pm to 5:00 pm

We will learn about the life and spirituality of Saint Francis in the form of a Reader’s Theater performance. This is a very simplified (‘Franciscan’!) form of theater in which the script is openly used as needed during the performance. In many ways it is similar to oral storytelling in which the ears and the imaginations of the audience are central to helping to bring the performance to life. So, relax and surrender yourself into the oral world which is created for us. Hand yourself over to letting the life and spirit of Saint Francis come to life for us during this performance. Let him speak to us “face to face”.
