“I see clearly that the thing the church needs most today is the ability to heal wounds and to warm the hearts of the faithful; (…) I see the church as a field hospital after battle.”   – Pope Francis

Come As You Are is a weekend retreat open to everyone 18 and over who is searching for their place in the “field hospital” of the Church. Whether you see yourself as a patient, healer, or both, we will come together as a community to reflect and seek understanding on how the Divine Physician – God – heals wounds; and, how He calls us to warm the hearts of our brothers and sisters, and ultimately, ourselves.

Opportunities will be provided for centering prayer sessions, periods of silence, proclamation of the Gospel, followed by lectio divina, interactive exercises, and group discussion. Introductory teaching on the method of centering prayer will be available for newcomers.


$210 single-occupancy / private room / shared bath / all inclusive (includes meals & linens)

$185 double-occupancy / shared room w/shared bath / all inclusive (includes meals & linens)

$50 deposit will secure your reservation. Partial scholarships are available.

Register no later than Friday, April 5.
