Josephite sisters and many others take an opportunity each year to move away from the busyness of their ordinary daily life. They choose to retreat from the surface of life – to become centred and still. Their focus is to deepen their relationship with God.

There are special locations or Retreat Centres where a person can go for a week or even a few days to focus on the inner journey. If a person wishes there are retreat guides available to offer individual direction and listen closely to what the person is seeking.
