Mini Retreats

What is a Suscipe Mini-Retreat?

Simply put, our community takes one half day each month (typically a Saturday morning) to be on retreat together.  The retreat consists of a talk, time for silence/prayer, and optional small group discussion time.  It’s a great opportunity to reset and spend some time with the Lord!

Typical Schedule

Attend Mass, on own, if possible


Live Talk in Suscipe Community


Time for Silence, Reading, and Prayer


Small Group Discussion Time

End at 11:45am

Here’s What You Can Expect

 Talk on a Spiritual Topic

Our topic will be on a specific area of the interior life and will be sure to give you much to consider and pray with for the day.


This is a retreat you can do on your own wherever you are able to.  Simply find a place where you can spend time in prayer and quiet.

Guided Prayer Time

We’ll provide each participant helpful prayer materials, guidance, etc. to help guide your prayer.

Half Day

While the retreat is flexible, typically you’ll want to set aside about three hours total for the retreat.

Supportive Group Discussion

You are welcome to join the discussion online through Zoom to share with and receive from others who participated in the retreat.


Other “Good to Knows”

  • This retreat can be done entirely on your own or feel free to invite your friends, family, or parish small group to join you and do it together!  You can skip our online small group discussion and we’ll provide you with the discussions questions to use on your own.

  • You’ll need to sign up for the Suscipe online community in order to gain access to the retreat.  It’s free to sign up!

  • While the retreat is free for people to participate in, the recordings and and resources provided are only available to Suscipe+ members after the day of the retreat.
