Retreats help us remove ourselves from the daily routine of our ministry
and provide opportunities for us to re-focus, re-energize, and re-connect to
our priorities as ministers of the word and actions of Jesus.

Sabbaticals also remove us from our daily routines but for an extended
period of time to unplug and recharge, providing a more rest oriented time,
or to address spiritual or academic challenges.

Here is a sampling of offerings found on the internet. It is not a
comprehensive list and AUSCP does not endorse any program offering. It is
simply a list gathered through searching the web for priest retreats and
sabbatical programs to assist priests in searching for these programs. If
you would like to suggest a program for others to consider, please let us
know. We would be happy to include the information.
