We hope to host our next retreat in the Fall of 2021. Check back and stay tuned for more information.


WELCOME evolved from the Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP) retreat, which was created in 1969, and has helped transform more than 1,400 parishes in 100 dioceses and 40 states. Now part of the Dynamic Catholic organization, Matthew Kelly’s WELCOME weekend preserves everything that is wonderful about the CRHP experience and integrates essential faith formation ideas and tools from Dynamic Catholic.

Through the WELCOME weekend, you can step back from your hectic everyday life to reflect on your spiritual life and journey. This experience helps people discover what’s missing in their lives and what to do about it.  Most people are not living up to their potential and they don’t know what to do about it!  This weekend will transform you!
