The retreat season has started at Arnold Hall Conference Center in Pembroke, MA:  Between now and mid-May, weekend and midweek retreats are available for men, as well as college and high school students. Go to the Arnold Hall website to see the dates and to register: The retreat for college men is February 21 – 24, 2019 and the retreat for high school young men is March 8 – 10, 2019.

The weekend retreats for men begin at 8:00 pm on Thursday and end at 1:30 pm on Sunday.  The retreats consist of talks by a priest of Opus Dei, daily Mass, times for confession and lots of time for quiet, personal prayer.  Each participant has his own bedroom.  

Retreats are wonderful occasions to get away in a peaceful environment to pray, make a deep examination of conscience and be fit to return to everyday life with a greater sense of joyful confidence in God.  For more information on how to benefit from a retreat, please go to the Arnold Hall website, and under Retreats, download the booklet To Make a Good Retreat, by Jim Stenson.
