Do you sense that something’s missing in your life? Do you feel that if you weren’t so busy you would be happier, healthier, more effective, more fulfilled, and maybe even a better person?

Come to the next Welcome weekend! It’s an incredible experience that will help you discover what’s missing in your life and what to do about it. Whether you want to connect with others in the parish, improve your prayer life, or just take a break from the craziness of your everyday to have fun, you will find what you are looking for—and more.

How Does It Work?

Welcome is a weekend retreat given by men or women who have previously attended Welcome at your parish. Through fellowship, faith sharing, hospitality, music, individual and group activities, Mass, and more, participants have the opportunity to step back from the everyday to reflect on their lives and their spiritual journeys and build meaningful relationships with other men or women in the parish. (Men and women attend separate weekends.)

Why Should I Go to Welcome?

You will discover what Welcome is and why they should attend as Matthew Kelly and people all across America share how Welcome had a life-changing impact on them.

The Transformative Power of Welcome

You will hear a compelling testimony from Gary, a reluctant Welcome attendee whose life was transformed after his parish’s Welcome Weekend.
