    Our Mission:

 

    Holy Face of Jesus Retreat House was established to promote a deeper spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church. With the Blessed Virgin Mary as our intercessor and guide, our mission is to provide experiences that foster and nurture spiritual growth and development in young adult Catholic women, in accordance with the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.

 

Our Vision:

 

    We seek to provide opportunities for  Catholic women to enter a deeper union with our living Lord through the sacraments of Holy Mass and the Eucharist, and Confession

   We offer an environment where Catholic women can spiritually enrich their lives through:

 

    ·         Eucharistic Adoration

    ·         Recitation of the Rosary

    ·         Marian devotions

    ·         Times of quiet prayer, solitude, and reflection

    ·         The Catechism of the Catholic Church

    ·         Catholic literature

    ·         Bible and scripture study

 

 We desire to offer retreats and educational programs that will:

 

    ·         Allow Catholic women to reflect upon and examine different roles in life and vocations

 

    ·         Recognize the talents and gifts that God has bestowed upon them

 

    ·         Give understanding to the challenges of being Catholic in today’ world

 

    ·         Present lectures by guest speakers on various topics of discussion such as: single life, marriage,

              the family, and religious or consecrated life.
