Attend the 2019 Winter Retreat


Knights, Dames, and Year of Formation Candidates are invited to attend the American Association’s winter spiritual retreat from Friday, February 1 through Sunday, February 3, 2019 at the Bethany Retreat Center in Lutz, Florida. Our retreat master will be Msgr. Stuart Swetland, S.T.D. Msgr. Swetland will be speaking on the theme of “Praying with the Gospel of Saint Luke.” To learn more about Msgr. Swetland, please click here.

All members are encouraged to attend; candidates in their year of formation and new members who have not been on an Association’s three-day retreat are particularly encouraged to attend. It is important to recognize that a three-day retreat, such as the Bethany Retreat, is very different from a morning of recollection or a day of reflection.

Check in is from 3PM to 4PM on Friday; the retreat opens with Mass at 4:45PM. It closes after Mass and breakfast on Sunday morning. Click here to download the full schedule for more specific information.

Space is limited, so please register at your earliest possible convenience. Dress is business casual. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes as there is some walking between buildings during the retreat.

To register online, please click here. Please register by Friday, January 11th to reserve your spot at this retreat.
