Our weekend retreats begin on Friday evening. Dinner is at 5:35 p.m. After dinner, the sacrament of Reconciliation is offered, followed by Mass and/or a conference.
On each full day of the retreat, Mass is celebrated in the morning and three conferences are held. Retreatants may participate in the Divine Office with the monastic community. The celebration of Mass on Sunday, followed by the final conference and lunch, concludes the retreat.
To help make your retreat prayerful, we suggest that you bring a Bible. The retreat office has copies of the New American Bible. The Basilica Gift Shop, located on the first floor of the Parish Center adjoining the Basilica, stocks spiritual books and other religious items.
Rooms are either air-conditioned or equipped with a ceiling fan. Linens and towels are provided. Recreational opportunities include the Saint Vincent Fitness Trail and the Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve.
