Being Authenically-Catholic in a Difficult Culture ~ Perhaps You Were Born for Such a Time as This! 

[Location: St Stephen Catholic Church, Cincinnati OH - Babysitting available for this retreat - reserve your spot today]

“Enlarge the space for your tent, spread out your tent cloths
unsparingly; lengthen your ropes and make firm your pegs”
(Isaiah 54:2-3). This is a message of hope and action.

March 15-16
Women’s Retreat: Evangelizing and Discipling
the Family and Beyond
Be encouraged and uplifted. Join your sisters in the Lord as we
seek to live the Great Commission and begin with our own


April 19-21
Additional Life in the spirit Seminars
If you are baptized and confirmed you have the
Holy Spirit. “I remind you to stir into flame the gift of God that
you have through the imposition of my hands (2Timothy1:6).
Do you want to love and serve God more? Come and
experience His Love.


May 24-26
Prophecy, Discernment and
St. Paul tells us to seek the gift of prophecy above all other Gifts
in 1Cor. 14:1. Discernment is important to determine true
prophecy from false prophecy. These gifts of the Holy Spirit are
very effective when carrying out the commission to Evangelize.


June 7-9
40-Hours Devotion and Family Campout
This is such an amazing weekend – steeped in prayer,
Eucharistic Adoration, teaching, fun and fellowship. Where else
can you find an opportunity like this? You owe it to yourself
and your family.


June 17-21
Family Vacation with the Lord
Mornings are scheduled at the Discipleship Center with Catholic
Vacation Bible School for Children and Teachings for Adults.
Afternoons are free for the family to explore beautiful Adams
County, walk in the woods, blaze some trails on our 64 acres of
fields and wooded hillsides or check out the many sites in
Cincinnati, Dayton or Columbus. A Light Breakfast and Lunch
will be served. Dinner is on your own. Guest rooms are
available - several for large families.


The following retreats are part of the 40-day Discipleship Program. 

This formation can be done in 40 straight days or in segments. You are
welcome to come to any part even if you can’t make the 40-day commitment.
*The asterisks denote weekends.  

June 24-26
Living in Reality
This Seminar helps build a firm foundation for a Christian who is
just beginning a walk with the Lord. There is much to consider
here. If there are cracks in your foundation, areas in need of
healing of which you are not even aware, you are
at risk of great losses in your life.


June 26-28
How do I Seek the Kingdom of God?
This one provides building blocks for the Christian Life and a
broad view of the Church established by our Lord and Savior,
Jesus Christ.


June 28-30*
Lifestyle in the Spirit
Teachings from the Bible that challenges the ways of the World
that have ensnared many Christians. Most pastors avoid them
but they need to be heard (Sex, Money, Work, Sunday Worship,
Freedom, Risen Life).


July 1-3
Intimacy with God (Sacraments)
Our God wants to be intimate with us. His Love for us is so
amazingly astounding that we can barely imagine it, let alone
understand it. Come seek Him in the ways he has given us to be
one with Him. “For no one hates his own flesh but rather
nourishes and cherishes it even as Christ does the church,
because we are members of His body” (Eph. 5:29-30).


July 3-5
Who Am I in Christ?
We are made in the image and likeness of God. Jesus came to
show us the Father and is Himself the image of His Father. We
will look at the phases of our life and how our identity is formed
or not formed in the likeness of God. We will also know how to
make all things right in Him, with Him and through Him, Jesus
the Christ.

It is a series of 13 Retreats consisting of six to seven seminars each, reaching the depths of our soul and shining the Light of the Gospel on our sin and confusion. If you feel called to this commitment, please call us and let us know. “Go out into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15).
