The retreat ministry involves
Redemptorists in conducting retreats and recollections for the clergy,
religious and laity amongs whom the youth have a special place. Through
this ministry, the Redemptorists strive to lead people to greater awareness
of their Christian calling and witnessing to their vocation as lay people
in their own ecclesial communities. This ministry is carried out in our
own retreat houses or elsewhere.
There are three Redemptorist retreat houses
in the Southern Phillipines: the Holy Family Retreat House in Cebu, the
Scala Retreat House in Bacolod, and the St. Clement's Retreat House in
Our Retreat Houses serve the local Church
through retreats and seminars for the diocesan clergy, religious
and lay people. We give preference to retreats and seminars organized by
Our Retreat Houses are creating an atmosphere
conducive to prayer, personal reflection, sharing, liturgical celebration.
They strive to bring about a change in attitude, integration of faith and
life, richer family living and greater social awareness.
In line with our option for the poor, we
make available our retreat houses to the poor, especially those from our
mission areas and other apostolates.
