Grow deeper in your relationship with God.
If you are seeking time away from the busyness and demands of everyday life or if you are wishing for a space that allows your mind, body, and spirit to surrender to God’s Presence, we hope you’ll make time to attend a retreat. A common practice in many spiritual traditions, retreats offer us a peaceful environment free of daily distractions so that we might open ourselves to a deeper communion with God…
Saint Barnabas also partners with the Redemptorist Renewal Center in Tucson, Arizona to offer three transformative retreats every year, each with a different design.
