“In catechesis it is Christ, the Incarnate Word and Son of God, who is taught… and Christ who teaches”

John Paul II, On Catechesis in Our Time

Join Rev. Francis Galvan, OSA and the Ministries and Outreach Office retreat team for the Jesus the Teacher Retreat at beautiful Westminster Abbey in Mission.

Hear informative and inspirational talks, spend time in prayer, join the monks for Mass and enjoy the company of others from around the Archdiocese. The retreat is designed for those in parish ministry but all are most welcome to attend!

This overnight retreat is a part of the RCIA and PREP Certificate Programs offered at the seasonal Formation Institutes. It provides an opportunity for catechists to deepen their relationship with the one Teacher, Jesus Christ, and reflect on their vocation to lead others to Him.
