Fall Retreat: TBA

Twice a year (once in the spring and once in the fall), we have retreats, graciously hosted by the Sisters of Life at their retreat center, Villa Maria Guadalupe, in Stamford, CT. These retreats include daily Mass, overnight Adoration, opportunities for Confession, praise & worship, prayer teams, small group discussions, shared meals, recreation, and more. 


Age Limit

This event is for individuals in their 20s and 30s. If you were born before April 7, 1977, you may not attend this retreat. You can find other great retreats and activities for Catholics at www.catholicnyc.com.


You must attend the retreat in its entirety. We are not able to accommodate retreatants arriving late, departing early, or leaving the retreat center for part of the weekend.


We are blessed to have a high level of interest in these retreats and we are grateful for the fruit that has been borne of this ministry. In order to share this opportunity with new retreatants, we are reserving 20 Women's and 20 Men's tickets for first-time attendees. You may select this ticket option if you are local to the New York City metro area and have never attended a Frassati Fellowship of NYC retreat.


If tickets are listed as sold out, please opt for a Waitlist ticket and we will contact you if and when spots open up. We will prioritize requests from retreatants who are local to the New York City metro area. Please do not make arrangements to travel to this retreat if you are on the Waitlist or have not yet registered.


The retreat registration fee of $130 includes accommodations at Villa Maria on Friday and Saturday nights, as well as all meals and retreat activities. Please contact us at retreats@frassati.nyc if you have a financial hardship and we will consider requests for assistance on a case-by-case basis.


Under "Donation to Scholarship Fund," you have the option of donating to support our brothers and sisters who need financial assistance to attend this retreat. If you are able to donate here, please do.


Parking is available at Villa Maria Guadalupe.

Transportation by bus will be available from NYC for up to 54 retreatants. There is a $30 charge if you will need the bus in EITHER direction (meaning that one way and round trip are the same price). When you check out, please select "Bus Ticket." If the bus fills up, remaining retreatants will need to make their own travel arrangements.

The bus will depart at 6:15 p.m. on Friday from St. Vincent Ferrer Church (869 Lexington Ave, between 65th and 66th Streets) to Villa Maria. Please be on time if you select this option. We will return to the same location on Sunday.


Last-minute cancellations make it difficult to find someone to take your spot. Please be considerate of others who may want to attend and only sign up if you fully intend to come on this retreat. Nevertheless, we understand that sometimes plans change, and we ask that you let us know as soon as possible if you will not be able to make it to the retreat.

These are the deadlines for receiving a full or partial refund if you cancel:

February 19 - March 10            $130 refund (full refund)

March 11 - March 24                 $100 refund

March 25 - April 7                     $30 refund

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to write to us at retreats@frassati.nyc.

Thanks for your interest, and may God bless you!
