St. Joseph's Renewal Center

Where do you need to go to meet God?


September, 2018

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your presence, support, and openness. Nothing happens without YOU!  Your interest, curiosity, and the wanting for more is what challenge us to be creative!  All of the above gives purpose to St. Joseph Renewal Center.  We are entering our second year  here at Montfort Retreat Center in Bayshore, N.Y.  The Community is moving forward with the reconstruction of the St. Joseph's Convent.   The Sisters are enjoying their stay at the Renewal Center.  We ask for your continued prayers during this tremendous transition for the Sisters at the Convent.  

As you browse through this year's programming you will find the events that interest you from the past as well as new offerings that will stretch you to new heights.  Be open!  Give the time and experience you need to meet yourself and God in a new way.  We are presenting a new program, on taking our wide range of emotions to God in prayer and an afternoon of prayer for Married Couples. We have the privilege of having Paula D'Arey.  She is internationally known for her work with grief. The Youth Ministry program is continuing to serve the needs of junior high school young people. The Men 2 Men and Women 2 Women meet monthly and serve the needs of all who attend. Everyone is welcome. Curious yet! Keep on reading...

Ask yourself these two questions: Where do you need to go to meet God?  Where do you need to go to expand your relationship in human experience as well as in your spiritual life?  We are here for you!  If you are interested in Spiritual Direction and or training to become a Spiritual Director, please call and/or email us.
