The Church of St. Francis of Assisi is offering a
WINTER RETREAT FOR MINISTERS, VOLUNTEERS & PARISHIONERS.
Join committed members of our St. Francis of Assisi Community for a weekend away at the beautiful Loyola Jesuit Center in Morristown, New Jersey. This is a great opportunity to get away to refresh your spirit with a weekend full of prayer, reflections, and sharing of our faith. And it is a great way to get to know others in your church community better.
The weekend is structured around the celebration of the Liturgy of the Hours: Night prayer on Friday, Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer on Saturday, and Morning Prayer and Mass on Sunday. Between the times of prayer are 5 reflections on different aspects of our faith and we leave free time for individual reflection and prayer as well as time on Saturday evening for a social.
The weekend costs $250.00 which includes everything except your transportation to Morristown. (NJ transit goes directly from Penn Station to Morristown) Financial aid is available. See below.
Attendance Minimums and Maximums:
We need to have at least 20 registrants by February 3rd to hold the retreat. If less than 20 people register before February 3rd the retreat will have to be canceled and we will refund registration fees . Space is limited to only 40 people.
Registrants must show proof of full vaccination and booster. Negative antigen (rapid) test must be shown the day the retreat begins.
Here is some more information about the weekend:
The 2022 Winter Retreat is open to all Church of St. Francis of Assisi ministers, volunteers and parishioners of all ages.
This retreat is a chance for members of our community to escape the city for a couple of days to connect with one another and reconnect with God. There will be time to pray, hear talks, discuss the faith, and enjoy quiet time on the beautiful property of the Loyola Jesuit Center.
The Retreat Team will make arrangements for transportation to and from the train station and the retreat center for anyone arriving between 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM. If you must take a later train you will need to take your own cab to the center.
