Retreat for Men
For half a century, the men of St. George have enjoyed weekend retreats at Holy Family Passionist retreat house in West Hartford, CT. Holy Family has become a spiritual home away from home where one can tune out the noise of daily life and find peace.

What is a Retreat? Retreat is a gift to yourself a way to step aside from everyday concerns to relax and care for your soul. The retreat provides time for rest, reflection, prayer, and discussion. You can catch up on some rest, reconnect with a friend, get a massage, spend time in meditation, or be inspired by a dynamic speaker.

Why make a Retreat? Our lives are so full of responsibilities, worries, and noise that we often ignore the call of our inner lives. Our concerns with families, jobs, health, finance, and personal relationships may override our commitment to spiritual growth– even when we need it most. A retreat helps us regain balance and develop the necessary spiritual tools to access the presence of God in the midst of daily life.
