What is the Priest Retreat Program?

The heart of an Earthen Vessels Retreat© is living the Paschal Mystery.

The Earthen Priest Retreat Program provides ways for priests to experience how living the “Paschal Mystery” is living our journey with Jesus Christ. This is because living the Paschal Mystery is a central purpose of Christian life and therefore a central purpose of priestly ministry in the Church.

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states the matter clearly:

“The Paschal Mystery of Christ’s cross and Resurrection stands at the center of the Good News that the apostles, and the Church following them, are to proclaim to the world.”

An Earthen Vessels Priest Retreat provide opportunities for each priest to renew his participation in the Paschal Mystery of Christ. From this each priest is more able to renew the church through parish ministry or any form of priestly ministry.

The Earthen Vessels Priest Retreat Program provides a way to renew the commitment of each priest to the New Evangelization.
