The Trinity & Priestly Life: Praying, Preaching, & Ministering in Light of the Mystery of God
An Intellectual Retreat for Priests
June 22-25, 2021 | Enders Island, Mystic, CT
Begins with check-in at 4:00pm on Tuesday, June 22nd
Concludes with check-out at 12:30pm on Friday, June 25th
Description: “The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity is the central mystery of Christian faith and life. It is the mystery of God in himself. It is therefore the source of all the other mysteries of faith, the light that enlightens them” (CCC 234).
This retreat for Catholic priests offers a time for prayer and intellectually stimulating presentations and discussion, as well as an opportunity to meet and enjoy the company of brother priests from across the country. While it will incorporate the traditional elements of a retreat, it also aims to engage the life of the mind in the contemplation of mysteries of the faith: loving God by seeking to understand Him and the mysteries of the faith better.
Held on a beautiful 11-acre island off the coast of Connecticut, the retreat's intellectual and spiritual elements will dovetail in the service of the pastoral work of the priesthood: to help the faithful to enter more deeply into the divine life of the Holy Trinity.
Two retreat conferences will be given each day, seeking to engage the practical challenges of contemporary pastoral ministry with the wisdom of St. Thomas Aquinas.
Retreatants will have the opportunity to pray the Divine Office and celebrate Mass in common or in private. There will also be time for fraternal recreation with refreshments each evening.
Fr. Andrew Hofer, O.P. (Dominican House of Studies)
