About the Passionists

Holy Family is a ministry of the Passionist Community founded in Italy by St. Paul of the Cross over two hundred years ago.  From Dublin, Ireland to Sydney, Australia. From Port au Prince, Haiti to Port Moresby in Papua New Guinea, the Passionists today minister in 59 countries and on 5 continents. Across the globe, they keep alive the memory of the Passion bringing hope and healing to all those they meet.

Holy Family Passionist Retreat Center in West Hartford, Connecticut is the largest Passionist ministry in the world and the largest parish-based Catholic retreat center in the United States. Each year 19,000 people find comfort, healing, and rest in this oasis of God’s peace.
