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.
“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
For both converts and those on the journey to Catholicism, the goal of these retreats is to provide an opportunity for building fellowship, assisting those who are facing tough questions or decisions, and encouraging all in an ever greater walk with Christ.
“A highlight for me was hearing from other people who’d had similar experiences, and knowing that God had called me in the same way that he’d called other people.”
– Beverly W.
The retreats are limited to 25-40 active 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.
— Retreat 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
“Everyone there was at a different part of their journey- but what I saw was that no matter where you are, the (CHNetwork) staff is able to meet you there, and take you further along.”
– Tony F.
