Join CCO for a retreat on prayer at the Canadian Martyr Shrine led by CCO Founders André and Angèle Regnier, and Fr. John O’Brien, SJ.

Inspired by the Canadian Martyrs, who rooted their mission in prayer; begin, renew, or deepen your relationship with God by learning how to have a life-giving, personal prayer time.

The retreat will include talks, personal prayer and reflection time, opportunities for mass, reconciliation, blessing with the relics of the Martyrs and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament with worship music. Participants are invited to camp out on the Shrine grounds Friday and Saturday night. Schedule to come.
