Holy Desire

THIS EVENT IS FOR PRIESTS AND THOSE IN FORMATION FOR THE ORDAINED PRIESTHOOD ONLY

Offered as a weeklong retreat, or a one-day retreat held in dioceses across the country, this retreat has become an exceptional opportunity for priests to explore the deep desires of the masculine heart.

The teaching helps us understand how disordered desires are rooted in underlying holy desires and unmet needs, and how they are tied to our false identities. This teaching also focuses on learning how to heal the underlying wounds of our heart and engage productively in the battle of desires to find the true fulfillment of all desire.

All sessions are from a solid foundation of Scripture, the Catechism, psychotherapy and personal witness on the topics of desire, healing, intimacy, and freedom.

The five-day retreat includes opportunities for prayer ministry, journaling, daily Mass, fraternal interaction, and free time.
