Upcoming Retreats & Events
Get Closer to Christ at the Men’s White House Retreat
All men and friends of the parish are invited to join us on our annual men’s retreat at the beautiful White House in South St. Louis County. This will be a silent, guided retreat based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. It’s a peaceful break from the chaos and confusion of everyday life.
Consider it a 3-day vacation with Christ on the Jesuit’s 80-acre campus overlooking the Mississippi River. All meals and private lodging are provided. Our retreat begins the evening with dinner, Thursday, June 8th and concludes Sunday, June 11th after lunch.
There is no set fee to attend a retreat at White House! White House operates on a free will offering basis, asking those in attendance to simply give what they can at the conclusion of the retreat.
To register call 800-643-1003 or visit https://whitehouseretreat.org. For more information, contact Ron Auer at email@example.com.
