Coming Home Network Retreats are opportunities to meet (or catch up with) the CHNetwork staff and other members of the network for a time of discussion, prayer, and worship. Intended for both converts and those on the journey to Catholicism, whether lay or clergy, the goal is to promote Christian fellowship among the attendees, assist in discernment for those who are facing tough questions or decisions, and to encourage all in an ever greater walk with Christ.

The retreats are limited to 25-40 registered members of the Coming Home Network who are either converts (or reverts) to Catholicism OR who are non-Catholics thinking about joining the Catholic Church.

Due to a limited number of spaces we will prioritize the registrations of clergy and laity that we have been in active contact with and which are at difficult stages of their journey.

What Our Members Say

“The Coming Home Network has been a key part of our journey. It was helpful to meet other former clergy members through them, who’ve had similar experiences…the retreats were so fulfilling, so rich. I would go to one every month if I could!”

Charlotte Wiley

Retreat Schedule & Highlights

Every retreat varies slightly according to the location, size of the group, and which staff members are able to attend. However, here is an overview of some of of the retreat schedule and highlights:
  • Each day begins with Mass and ends with Evening Prayer.
  • There are also opportunities to learn about and participate in the Rosary and other types of Catholic prayer.
  • 6 topical discussion sessions with members and staff about different aspects of the journey form the structure of the retreat and create opportunities for conversion stories to be shared and questions to be asked and answered.
  • Fellowship with other converts/journeyers during breaks, meal times, and a nightly social hour with snacks and beverages.
  • Ample time for prayer, rest, and networking
