PILGRIMAGES & RETREATS

The National Shrine of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel offers pilgrims a daily retreat that can be organized according to your needs, or our own specific retreat theme can be offered. A typical day of retreat includes a continental breakfast, shrine tour, time for individual or group prayer, lunch, a short reflection talk or personal time for exploring the outdoor shrines and beautiful grounds on your own.  A Catholic gift shop stop is also a highlight of the retreat day.
