The Diocese of Des Moines

Diocesan REtreats


If Jesus took time to get away from his daily life to spend time in prayer, shouldn't you do the same?  The Diocesan Department of Evangelization and Catechesis offers a number of retreats to help you get away from your daily routine and all the noise that comes along with it to experience God in the silence and tranquility that comes with being removed from our daily lives.  Register today by clicking the name of the retreat you'd like to go on!
