Marist Identity and Spirituality Retreat Experience

Embracing Our Call is a response to the suggestions made for more of a retreat-type experience.

Thus, participants engage in more reflective activities, learning and using spiritual practices to deepen their

understanding of Marist spirituality.

This is a three-day retreat program, based on the theme of “Making Jesus Christ Known and Loved.”

Participants will be invited to go deeper, not only in their Marist identity and spirituality, but also

in their personal relationship with God. Open to all, although Sharing Our Call is a suggested pre-requisite.

Topics to be explored include: Contemplative Spiritual Practices, Being Mystic and Prophet in Today’s

World, and Marist Spirituality - A Call to Love and Live in Communion.


"Loved the time to reflect, chat, be silent, be in community, be alone, no stress, no pressure."

"Excellent flow to each day. Felt very balanced. I enjoyed the prayers - the different types and settings."

"I loved the contemplative practices. I hope to incorporate some of them into my daily life."

"Esopus always helps me feel closer to God. This retreat made me more aware of my MARIST spirituality, within the context of my Christian faith."
