The Passionists of St. Paul of the Cross Province conduct and sponsor four retreat centers in the eastern United States and another in Mandeville, Jamaica. Instead of the preacher going to the congregation, the congregation comes to the preacher at the retreat center, whether in New York, or North Palm Beach, Florida; in the hills of New England or on a hill in Pittsburgh.
At our Passionist retreat centers, priests, brothers, religious women and trained lay people welcome retreatants of all backgrounds in an experience in which people gain insight into themselves and their lives.
We offer programs for men, women, couples and families, all designed to meet the needs of those searching for answers to life’s most difficult questions. Several of our centers conduct special programs and retreats specifically for law enforcement officers, firefighters, doctors and other professionals, and people in recovery.
Our Passionist retreat centers offer a respite and sanctuary in today’s fast-paced, confusing society, and present a chance for people to slow down, find peace and encounter God.
