Holy Week

Maryknoll Mission Discernment Retreat

March 28-31, 2024 – El Paso, TX

The Holy Week Mission Discernment Retreat is an opportunity to reflect on one’s call to mission, to learn more about what a commitment to overseas service entails and to consider whether this might be the next step in your own mission journey. Retreatants will meet current and returned Maryknoll missioners; listen to mission stories from those who have worked in Asia, Africa, and the Americas; and engage in small group reflection and discussion. There will be Holy Week liturgies, Stations of the Cross, and Easter Vigil celebrations. There will be time to socialize and also time for individual reflection. Retreatants will receive one-on-one guidance from Maryknoll mentors and will also learn about the admission requirements, application process and placement options.

A suggested donation could help us cover 4 days and 3 nights of lodging and food. Space is limited and registrations will be made on a first come, first served basis. You must be 21 years or older to attend the retreat and provide your own transportation to and from El Paso, TX.  

Please complete the registration form below by Monday, March 18, 2024. Once you submit your registration form, you will receive a confirmation email.
