Complete Schedule of Retreats for 2017

(Retreats are subject to change. Please check the schedule for changes )

July 7-8, 2017, Fr. James McCormack, MIC

Praying for the Holy Souls and our Families

Join us for this retreat with Fr. James McCormack, a member of the Marians of the Immaculate Conception. He currently serves as novice master, prefect of formation and local superior at the Marian Scholasticate in Washington, D.C. He regularly teaches classes on spirituality to the Marian novices. As a seminarian, he looked forward to his priesthood with the goal: "I want to be a merciful father, similar to the one in the parable of the Prodigal Son, who welcomes back with love and even runs to meet his wayward son."

July 28-29, 2017 Fr. Ben Luedtke, John LaBriola


Forgive That You May be Forgiven

Father Ben Luedtke was ordained by Pope John Paul II in Rome and is a missionary priest who has worked on three continents. He personally knew Mother Teresa of Calcutta and was often her personal driver in Rome. Each Missionary of Charity prays for a special priest; Fr. Leudtke was Mother Teresa’s special priest. Father currently resides at St. Albert the Great Parish in Dearborn Heights. Father Ben is a very sought after speaker, spiritual director and confessor. He presently serves Mother Teresa’s Missionary Sisters of Charity and is a spiritual director to several Carmelite Monasteries.

John LaBriola, author, radio host and well known Catholic speaker in the field of spiritual warfare will join us for this retreat. His book, Onward Catholic Soldier, is a wealth of knowledge from the saints, scripture and the Catholic Church in identifying, resisting and protecting against spiritual affliction.

Sept. 15-16, 2017 Fr. Aniello Salicone

Virgin Mary 5

Come Away and Rest Awhile Under the Mantle of Our Sorrowful Mother

We will celebrate our 20th anniversary on the Feast Day of Our Lady of Sorrows. We invite everyone to join us on this special occasion especially our many friends who have been to our retreats the past 20 years. We would love to see everyone again.

Fr. Aniello leads this retreat as we experience the healing power of God. Embrace the faith as we celebrate Our Blessed Mother in heaven who knows our needs and leads us to her Son.

This retreat will conclude with a healing service. Fr. Aniello will pray over each person individually.

Pray the Rosary! Honoring Our Lady of Fatima on 100th Anniversary



“N”, or ن​, is the first letter of the Arabic word for Christian, “Nasrani” or Nazarene. It has become the symbol of solidarity for Iraqi Christians who are being forced by ISIS to leave their homes unless they convert to Islam, pay a fine, or face ‘death by the sword.’

Please recite the rosary in support of persecuted Christians throughout the world.
