Adult Formation

Below are a number of opportunities for adults to grow their relationship with the Lord and with fellow St. Joseph parishioners.

Parish Retreat Weekend

The Parish Retreat is a personal and parish spiritual renewal process. As Catholics, we are called to witness to one another the amazing things God has done for us. The retreat process allows us to do just that—take a break from our busy lives, share our faith with others, and get to know God through his works. Since 1969, this retreat of Christ Renews His Parish & Welcome has impacted over 1,400 parishes throughout the United States. Today, these retreats are the primary program for personal and parish spiritual renewal in over 100 Catholic dioceses and 40 states across America.

Have questions about the retreat? Are you interested to learn more?
Contact Parish Office at cparker@stjosephwaconia.org.

Sign-up typically opens 1-2 months in advance of the weekend on a first-come, first-served basis. Space is limited.
