Friday March 23rd to Sunday March 25th, 2018

This retreat is organized by London men in collaboration with Family Foundations Institute. This retreat will be conducted by Opus Dei, a personal Prelature of the Catholic Church.

Why a Retreat?

The aim of the retreat is to assist men with integrating family life, professional work, leisure time and social dealings more fully with their relationship to God.

Daily Agenda

Each day will begin with morning Mass and include a series of meditations, talks, and spiritual reading, Holy Rosary and other Catholic piety practices. The specific agenda for the weekend will be provided on arrival and allows for time of private prayer and reflection. There will be opportunities for confession and spiritual direction.


A private common room in the Conference Centre and the Rose Chapel are reserved for the exclusive use of retreat participants.
The Rose Chapel is a fully restored, century-old church with cathedral seating and wheelchair accessibility.
