Guest House invites you to attend our 2020 Winter Retreat. Brother Wayne Fitzpatrick , MM, will lead the retreat. Brother Wayne’s presentations will focus on the Twelve-Steps and how the steps help guide us during the blessings and challenges we face in our ministries.

Please join us as we spend time together listening, sharing, praying and enjoying one another’s company throughout the retreat days.

As always, our retreats are offered for our alumni, as well as other clergy and men religious who came to recovery through other treatment centers or entered recovery on their own.
