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.
You will have lifetime access to the retreat to view at their own pace and schedule.
What are people saying?
Can I watch any session replays online after the live session?
Yes! The retreat replays will be available to participants for life following the retreat weekend on our password-protected site. We will post replays for viewing during session breaks during the retreat so that you can view them same-day.
The retreat live sessions are in eastern time, but I live in a different time zone. How would this work?
You can attend as many or as few of the live sessions as you’d like. Our team will be posting the replays of recordings after each of the session breaks so that they will be available for same-day viewing. The sessions are not linear, so you can watch them in any order. If they start too early or too late for you, you can join the live sessions when able and catch up on the replays later.
Do I have to attend all live sessions of the retreat?
The retreat is designed to follow a set live schedule, but we understand that some people may have other obligations. Ideally, participants are setting time aside to enter into the retreat as they would on a retreat weekend. We will be posting the replays of sessions for participants on the same day they stream live for easy catching up.
How interactive are the live sessions?
Aside from the Sunday morning Q&A session, each session and meditation will offer a short presentation followed by a brief guided meditation. There is no requirement to have your camera or audio on, and you will be able to chat in questions during these sessions.
Feel free to simply listen to the sessions while on a walk in the park :) if that helps you to pray.
What do you mean by "a retreat from the comfort of your favorite place"?
Given the virtual delivery of the retreat, you are able to join any sessions from any place with internet connection or cellular data. That could be sitting on a beach, in a quiet park or garden, or a comfy reading nook at home away from distractions. We encourage people to seek an environment away from the typical distractions of life.
Why isn't there a free option of this retreat like with other VCC conferences?
It’s customary to pay for a professional retreat experience with a seasoned and polished retreat master. The online nature of the retreat has allowed us to offer this retreat at a fraction of the cost of a three-day in-person retreat. We aimed to make this a fair and affordable opportunity for those seeking to invest further in their spiritual growth.
Will there be a program guide or other materials?
We will provide a full printer friendly digital workbook with review notes and reflection questions.
Do my spouse and I have to register separately?
Anyone in your household is welcome to attend the retreat under a single registration. We prohibit any sharing of login credentials outside of your immediate household (those people who live with you in your home).
Can we offer this as a group retreat at our parish and host a watch party?
You may, but each participant will be required to register separately. We do not offer a group package.
