“I have no doubt that folks have prayed and fasted for he success of the conference, and that can almost be felt upon arrival. I only had to attend once and I’m committed now, Lord willing, to attend each year.”

-Deacon, 2017 Retreat Participant

“I only had to attend once and I’m committed now…”

“I was feeling very tired, feeling down and frustrated, and even alone, but after each segment of the day’s schedule was finished, I felt more alive, stronger and filled with the Holy Spirit. I am a changed person!”

-Priest, 2017 Retreat Participant

“I felt more alive…”

“As a first timer I did not know what to expect. What an amazing experience it was. I felt as if the presenters where speaking directly to me, naming problems and fears that I thought only I experienced. The worship was amazing, the masses so reverent, and the speakers were excellent. I would recommend this conference to anyone and everyone in priestly ministry or formation.”

-Seminarian, 2017 Retreat Participant

“I would recommend this conference to anyone…”

“A way to recharge and refocus. Returning to Franciscan University for the Priests, Deacons and Seminarians Retreat is an opportunity to get away from demands of life and a time to deepen your relationship with Christ and His Church”
