In an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, Capuchin Retreat is operating with a reduced capacity for in-person retreats and programs. Masses are held outdoors Monday through Saturday at 8:00 pm on the front lawn of the retreat house. The grounds of the retreat center are open for individuals and members of the same household to enjoy while observing social distancing. We ask that those visiting the grounds check in at the front desk. In compliance with Michigan guidelines, face masks are required to be worn in the Retreat House and at outdoor Mass.
