What is the mission of the Nazareth Family Apostolate?

The mission of the Nazareth Family Apostolate is to discover God at work in the hidden and ordinary events of everyday family life, where we become communities of love and a hope for the world in imitation of the Holy Family.

What is a Nazareth Family Retreat?

A Nazareth Family Retreat is a one-week getaway for the whole family to enjoy!!
Each family stays in their own separate half of a large cabin with their own bathroom. Families prepare and eat their meals (breakfast & dinner, lunch is provided) in the main lodge, which also contains a beautiful chapel and indoor recreation areas.
A typical day at the retreat begins with Mass celebrated by our on-site priest from Madonna House in Combermere.
After Mass the children gather for spiritual formation, sports, and crafts led by wonderful volunteers.
Meanwhile, the parents gather for a special time to learn & share about bringing our families closer to Christ.
After a lunch prepared by our volunteer cooks, most families adjourn to the beach for some much-needed family fun & bonding time.
Each evening we gather for a different activity.  These include the rosary, Adoration, reconciliation for the children, and a bonfire!
