Online Retreat: Spend time this summer focusing on your Ministry in retirement


June 2 - 24 2020

Reframing Retirement for Mission will be transitioned to an online program during June 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This virtual program will include morning presentations from our renowned speakers and optional online discussions with others in this stage of life transition.

Reframing Retirement for Mission focused on religious men and women and diocesan priests in 2019, and CTU has received numerous requests to open it up to lay people as well. In response, Reframing Retirement 2020 will be open to lay, ecclesial ministers, religious men and women and diocesan priests and deacons who face the transition to retirement.

We invite you to consider our online program, Reframing Retirement for Mission: Sharing Wisdom and Seeking Meaningful Ministry after Retirement. It intends to assist the participants in making the difficult transition from a fully active ministry to retirement, with a special focus on recognizing and living their retirement years as a fruitful period of life with possibilities for personal growth as well as new opportunities for engaging in ministry.

The cost of the online program in 2020 is $250. Group rates will are available as well.

Topics will include:

  • Spirituality of aging
  • Life in transition
  • Holistic health
  • General theological and ministerial updating
  • Creative writing and engaging spirituality and the arts

Retirement need not mean withdrawal from meaningful work on behalf of Christ's mission and ministry, but it does require a realistic, necessary and creative adjustment in how to continue to respond faithfully to the call to bring Christ to others and to our world.
