The Diocesan Council
Ministry to the Divorced & Separated
Tucson, Arizona

Day of Retreat

Every spring the Diocesan Council for Ministry to Divorced and Separated and the Department of Parish Life & Ministry, co-sponsor an annual retreat. In the past this has taken place at St Cyril's,Picture Rocks Retreat House, or St Pius Parish.

A retreat master is chosen each year and allowed to prepare a retreat program for those attending. The retreat consist of registration, conferences, small group sharing lunch and Mass. The conferences usually deal with issues and topics that impact on persons who have gone through the process of divorce and separation. There is a question and answer period, when such questions as annulments, church status, etc. can be asked. The retreat master is usually a Catholic Priest but a professional counselor has been used.

The date and time of the retreat is announced in parish bulletins and in Pathways several weeks before the actual retreat. Registration is usually by phone and we usually have around 60 participants.

This years retreat will be held March 13, 2004 (9 am to 4pm) at St Pius RCC. It will be conducted by Father Gil Martinez, CP, of St Cyril Parish. For information and directions call Judy Seger at 323-2681.
