OSMM holds monthly weekend retreats to help others encounter Christ in a real way.
Retreats begin on Friday with a 4:00pm traveler’s Mass. Following dinner, we then proceed to begin our retreat with our main speaker followed by adoration and benediction. Prayer teams are available during this time. It is helpful to have your Bible with you on these retreats.
Saturday begins with the rosary and Mass and continues with speakers throughout the day. Late afternoon is reserved for prayer and rest and reflection. You are welcome to rest or pray on our beautiful grounds or in our chapels, and prayer teams are available in the Sanctuary of Our Sorrowful Mother. After dinner, on your own, the evening continues with talks and adoration and benediction. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is always available. We conclude with adoration and a healing service Saturday evening about 9pm.
Please note: If you are unable to attend the entire retreat, please come for what you can make! If it is not possible to set aside an entire weekend, we welcome you to come and go as you are able so that you may still receive the graces God has planned for you!
ALL OF OUR RETREATS ARE NO CHARGE, BUT WE WILL TAKE UP FREE-WILL OFFERINGS IN ORDER FOR OUR SORROWFUL MOTHER'S MINISTRY TO CONTINUE. THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY!!!

No children under the age of 18 at our monthly retreats, please. Children will continue to be welcome at our annual conferences due to the different atmosphere.
All retreats begin with a traveler's Mass on Friday at 4pm, and conclude with Saturday evening's healing service around 9pm, unless noted otherwise. At this time, all our events are free of charge unless clearly stated otherwise. We simply ask that you make a freewill offering during the weekend.
The OSMM community strives to offer a diversity of spiritual help that cannot be easily found in one place – powerful personal, one-on-one help, and holy priests for confession.
We would like to thank each and every one of you who has ever participated in one of our retreats, given a donation, or offered prayer support over the years.
As we move forward and the ministry continues to try to follow the will of God, we are now called to focus our efforts on our core mission, which is an adult healing and reconciliation ministry.
Through much careful prayer and discernment we have decided to limit all future retreats to those 18 yrs of age and older in order to better serve those who attend. It is our feeling that in doing this we will be able to better provide for the needs of those who are coming and those who are coming will receive more fully what they need and take this home to their families. Children will continue to be welcome at our annual conferences.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to learn and grow in the service of Our Sorrowful Mother.Under the Mantle of Our Sorrowful Mother, Debbie & Vanessa
