A weekend of prayer, reflection, and thoughtful discussion as we enter the sacred season of Advent this year. We will be exploring the recognition and meaning, that there is an adult message about Christ in Christmas. How does this message call us to respond in faith more deeply, and to proclaim the revelation to others? We will use scripture, discussion, private prayer, and faith sharing to embrace the message of Advent, surrounded by the beauty of the Hudson Valley. The retreat is open to all. Space is limited so please register soon if you are interested in joining us.

Our retreat guides will be Fr. Joe Donnelly and Bob Saraceni from Men’s Ministry

Jogues Retreat House at Cornwall-on-Hudson

Our venue will be the Jogues Retreat House at Cornwall-on-Hudson, NY. Jogues Retreat House is a Jesuit Retreat House owned and operated by the New York Province of the Society of Jesus. The house was designed by the famous architect, Stanford White and built in 1886 by Mead and Taft for the Stillman family as a summer residence.  Five Stillman generations have lived in Cornwall NY.  James Jewett Stillman, (1850 – 1918) a financier and president of the National City Bank which eventually became City Bank, purchased the property on which he erected the house that stands there today. In 1963, one of Stillman’s descendants, Chauncey Stillman, conveyed the property and house to the Scalabrini Fathers who used it as a seminary. They moved out in December 1973, and the house and property, according to Mr. Stillman’s wishes, passed to the Jesuits-New York Province. In 1975, the Cornwall residence was formally appointed by Father General Arrupe, as a house of the Society, Jogues Retreat, and has been used both as a villa house for Jesuits and as a retreat/meeting center.
