December 13-15, 2019

Rev. Jack Cryan

At Holy Family, we invite men in recovery into a peaceful atmosphere where you can rest, renew your spiritual life, and deepen your sobriety. Hear an inspiring lecture, get a massage (extra fee), catch up on some rest, and care for yourself as we care for you in mind, body, and spirit. Our Matt Talbot weekends are open to ALL people, from ALL backgrounds, regardless of whether or not you are a member of a church. The retreat begins on Friday with a buffet dinner from 6:00-7:30 p.m. and concludes on Sunday around 11:00 a.m. 

Generous scholarships are available. For scholarship information, call Eric R. (203) 360-7448. 

Offering: $250 which includes Matt Talbot dues. 

A Day to Breathe

Join us on Friday morning of your retreat weekend (any time after 9:00 a.m.), check in early, enjoy some quiet time and a nurturing lunch, and settle in before the retreat begins. Offering: $50
