Beginning on December 8, join us for a prayer walk outside in the beautiful surroundings of the Capuchin Retreat Center. We will be walking the paved trail of the Stations of the Cross and utilizing Advent scripture, prayer, and songs. We will end at a bonfire and enjoy hot chocolate and snacks. Enjoy gazing at the stars as well as some special purple Advent lights!
Please dress for the weather and bring a flashlight.
All ages welcome!
Join the Capuchin Franciscans for Mass every Monday through Friday at 8:00 am. Note that there is no Sunday Mass offered at Capuchin Retreat at this time. We ask the faithful to worship at their home parish on Sundays.
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.
