We are  "HOME.

Dear Friends,

Let us begin by praying for the grace to trust in the next step of our new beginning. We have moved back to Brentwood, to building #4 on the 3rd floor, St. Joseph Renewal Center. We are trusting that as we begin this new year of ministry that the path will be clear.

As you review the fall program, you will see familiar on-going programs as well as many new invitations. Because we are limited to the number of participants, due to COVID 19, be aware of the “maximum number” attached to each event and don’t delay registering early. Our building is cleaned over and over again during the day particularly after groups have been in attendance. Social distancing is set in all spaces and masks are worn as people enter the building and exit. During gathering times it is up to the individual.

So much has changed in regard to retreat houses and the ability to offer extended retreats. As we move forward, we are offering extended retreat days. It is not about how much time away from our ordinariness but coming to silence and a quiet environment with an open heart to receive and listen to ones inner voice. It is my hope that as you read through the brochure you will fell the invitation to respond.

Are you ready to say “yes” to the next step awaiting you? I look forward to our continued journey. Let us keep all our intentions in prayer.

Sincerely yours,


Josephine Daspro, CSJ. D.Min.
