John Paul II Center - Milwaukee


Jesus says, “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for your selves” (Mt. 11: 28-29). Retreats invite us to be evangelized by resting deeply in the presence of Christ. This page gives information on retreat planning, sites, and facilitators.
