COVID-19

In an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Capuchin Retreat is operating with a reduced capacity for in-person retreats and programs. The grounds of the retreat center are open to enjoy. We ask that those visiting the grounds check in at the front desk. In compliance with Michigan guidelines, face coverings are required to be worn in the Retreat House and at Mass, unless fully vaccinated.
