2018 Retreat Season Theme:
Faith, Hope, and Love
At the root of every Christian are the three theological virtues of FAITH, HOPE, and LOVE.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us that: “The theological virtues are the foundation of Christian moral activity; they animate it and give it its special character. They inform and give life to all the moral virtues. They are infused by God into the souls of the faithful to make them capable of acting as His children and of meriting eternal life.” (CCC, 1813)

This year’s retreat season will focus on improving and growing every aspect of your life through Faith, Hope, and Love.
As you look at the tree above you see:
The Roots—Our foundation—FAITH
The Trunk—Where we grow—HOPE
The Leaves—How we live—LOVE
Come, strengthen your roots so you might grow and bloom in your walk with Christ and others. The basic time frame for the weekend is 8:00 PM, Friday evening through Sunday Noon. We do ask that you get your room assignment and settle into your room by 7:30 PM on Friday. This allows a little time before starting the retreat experience.
Pricing Schedule for the Weekend Retreats directed by Notre Dame Staff is as follows:
  • $150 for a single room
  • $120 for a shared double room
  • $200 for a double room alone or considered “private” room
  • $200 per couple on a couple’s weekend
These are SUGGESTED donations. As always, our policy is that the fee should never deter anyone from coming on retreat. Notre Dame “Themed Retreats” is a Ministry of the Redemptorists of the Baltimore Province.

All are welcome and the committee can always use a few men to make posters for advertising and to phone those interested in attending. Consult the Bulletin in the fall for more details.
