Family Encounter Retreat

All families in our parish community are invited to attend a family retreat called, "Encuentros Familiares" (or "Family Encounter").

The "Family Encounter" retreat is ideally for families with children ages 12 - 21.

The retreat is led and prepared by Jesuits in Miami in conjunction with lay spiritual leaders.  They are held at the Manresa Retreat House, also called the Center for Ignatian Spirituality (CIS).  The center seeks to serve individuals and families most in need of God. The CIS is committed to sharing the spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola and his particular way of seeing life and proceed through the following of Christ.

The next English Family Encounter will be held TBA. All families with children in middle and high school are invited to attend this 2-day experience to enrich their family life.

The Family Encounters, an apostolate of the Ignatian Spirituality Center of Miami, has been helping Spanish speaking families in our community since 1971. Today, the Encounter is also offered in English. This weekend experience will assist your family with the many challenges facing today’s society.
