Our prayer is a special adaptation of The Liturgy of the Hours, and includes exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, psalms, spiritual readings, prayers, and silent adoration.

Retrouvaille

Stress in Your Marriage?

Retrouvaille (pronounced retro-vi, meaning rediscovery) is a program for married couples who feel disillusioned, frustrated or angry in their marriage. Some experience coldness or conflict in their relationship. Sometimes life-changing events occur (car accident, illness) and most don't know how to change the situation or even communicate with their spouses about it. This world-wide Catholic program has helped tens of thousands of couples experiencing difficulties in their marriage. For confidential information about the Fall program beginning with a weekend at Notre Dame Retreat House on Nov 30, 2018, please call 585-293-1552 or visit the web site at www.HelpOurMarriage.com
