Montserrat Jesuit Retreat House

Invites you to join Fr. James Harbaugh, S.J. for our #02 Men's Recovery Retreat - January 5-7, 2018

Take time for yourself, be renewed and draw closer to God; come to a retreat at Montserrat Jesuit Retreat House

  • A recovery retreat is a time of quiet when you can get away from the ordinary demands of life.
  • A recovery retreat, along with the Twelve Steps, offers an opportunity to be a part of the Fellowship, and obtain peace and serenity.
  • A recovery retreat is a time of reconciliation and peace.

Discovering or deepening your own way of praying is an important outcome of the Montserrat retreat. A Montserrat retreat will ask you to look at your relationships: with God, with your spouses and families, with friends, with the Church, with your own world -- and with you own self. And you will hear Jesus Christ saying to you "Do not be afraid."
