The Cardinal Stritch Retreat House, a ministry supported by the generosity of the people of the Archdiocese of Chicago and its other benefactors, invites you to come away to pray. This invitation to pray is extended to you as you pass through our front door. Overhead is the inscription "Venite seorsum.” Come away by yourselves--come away to pray (Mark 6:31). This preserve of nature, comprising approximately 900 acres of forest and water, is the ideal setting for beholding the glory of God. Come away to a quiet place to pray. Venite seorsum.
Mayslake Ministries Men's Retreat
Celebrating and building on their 25-year tradition, Mayslake Ministries will offer three Silent Men’s Retreats here at the beautiful Cardinal Stritch Retreat House amid the serene surroundings of the St. Mary of the Lake Seminary grounds. This year’s theme is:
ENCOUNTER JESUS: LIVING THROUGH HIM, WITH HIM, IN HIM
As followers of Jesus the Christ we believe we are called to a life that includes a personal, active, and genuine encounter with Jesus, our Lord. We are called to intentionally live through him, with him and in him. This retreat is an opportunity to draw closer to Jesus by reflecting on some themes that characterize his life. The more intimate our relationship with Jesus, the more we will be transformed into his image and likeness.
Every year, men retreat attendees exclaim how the silence of these retreats is the most life-giving aspect. Mayslake Ministries honors that spiritual need and have created the weekend retreat with presentations wrapped in prayer and song, ample time for silent reflection and enjoying nature, opportunities to receive spiritual direction and celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation along with Mass.
