A military retreat can either be a sign of failure and surrender or a strategic maneuver
to disengage from combat and analyze the state of the conflict and consider tactics to
win the battle.

A spiritual retreat is an opportunity to withdraw from the routine and pressures of life
and to open our heart and mind to God’s love for us and discern the movement of the
Spirit in our life and surrender to God’s will.

There are a variety of options available for a retreat in and near the Archdiocese of New
Orleans, ranging from one day of reflection to a three-day silent retreat.  For people seeking
a deeper experience of growth in their relationship with God, there are also options for
individual spiritual direction with a companion experienced in the spirituality of the Desert
Fathers and saints of the Church.

St. Christopher is blessed to have clergy with experience in spiritual direction and companion-
ship.  For more information and assistance in determining the spiritual experience that best
suits you, please contact Deacon Jerry Martinez, Director of Religious Education, at
deaconjerry@stchristopherano.com or 504-559-4495.
