Lessons From the Workshop of St. Joseph

A guided retreat from the comfort of your favorite place

What are we to learn from a man who never spoke in Scripture?

Think of the amount of distractions in your life today. Between cell phones, social media, advertisements, and the latest breaking news, is there any room left for silence?


Surprisingly, when we make room for silence, we can begin to understand its power. In that silence with St. Joseph as our guide, we can tap into that same wellspring of courage that equipped him to lead the Holy Family in Faith and Fidelity.

On this retreat, you will...

  • Deeply experience the life of St. Joseph, by reflecting on his 14 stations

  • See Jesus from a fresh perspective through the lens of St. Joseph

  • Learn how to serve God and your families with courage by reflecting on the life of St. Joseph and the patriarchs.

How does the retreat work?

The retreat is designed to be completed at your own pace over a three-day period. Each day you are led by Fr. Daniel Brandenburg, LC, through a series of presentations and reflections on the 14 stations of St. Joseph. 


Simply find a comfortable and quiet place with internet connection, log in, and enter the retreat. Even if you cannot complete it in three days, your lifetime access lets you watch when you can.

What are people saying?

This retreat was awesome!! It was very organized with the personal reflection questions, songs, prayers, and artwork. Fr. Daniel's passion, knowledge and personal experience is what made the virtual retreat outstanding!

The retreat was excellent. The communications, technology, set up, materials and monitoring up until the very end!

This was my first virtual retreat and it was truly a blessing. Fr. Daniel's meditations were very enlightening and the questions really took me deeper into understanding both myself and my relationship with God better.
