Retreat Ministry

Vincentians of the Eastern Province sponso St. Lazare Retreat Housewhich is located in Spring Lake, MI. Vincentians assist in administering sunsetand staffing St. Lazare and provide spiritual direction, sacramental ministry and pastoral training.

In today’s hectic pace of everyday life, one needs to take time to re-evaluate his/hers priorities and values. Even Jesus needed solitude. To us, Jesus extends his personal invitation: “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)

You are invited to come and spend a weekend at St. Lazare; forty hours of peace and solitude, gently focused on the spiritual needs of your life. Come and spend quiet time with the Lord. Allow Him to talk to you. The leisure pace at St. Lazare provides an uncommon opportunity to get away from the stress of your daily life and focus on your quiet journey with the Lord.
