Welcome Retreat Information

You’re invited! St. Dominic and Annunciation parishes are hosting Welcome a faith renewal weekend to be held at St. Dominic Church – Oct. 8 & 9 (women’s retreat) and Oct. 29 & 30 (men’s retreat). 

“Welcome Weekend helped me to experience God in a more deeply personal way from the faith testimonies, community prayer, and the beautiful adoration chapel. It was a very powerful and beautiful weekend.” ~ Denise Budd, parishioner at St. Dominic

The Welcome experience is an opportunity for parishioners to build meaningful relationships with other men and women interested in deepening their Catholic faith. The two-day, overnight retreats provide time for personal reflection, faith-sharing, relationship building, Scripture meditation, Adoration, Reconciliation, and Mass. 

The retreat weekend provides a supportive faith community wherein some of our deepest questions are addressed: Who am I? What am I here for? What matters most? What matters least?

We believe God is calling us to offer Welcome. And we, like Mary, say, “fiat,” “let it be done to us according to your word.”

For our first retreats this fall, we are pleased to be partnering with St. Michael’s Church, of St. Michael, MN, in the Twin Cities, as our “seed team” to begin the retreat process. St. Michael’s offers over 15 years of experience with the Welcome program, offered by Dynamic Catholic, and we are grateful for this opportunity to learn from St. Michael’s. With their assistance, we pray that God creates life-changing Welcome retreats at St. Dominic/Annunciation Parishes in the years to come! 

The camaraderie of the retreat is second only to the relief and renewal that you will experience in your faith.” ~Todd Zwolensky, parishioner of Annunciation
