Gathering of Men Retreat nurtures, encourages a better way of life

COLORADO — Join Catholic and Christian men January 22 – 24, 2016 to share reflections on life and spiritual journeys at the 25th Annual Gathering of Men Retreat in Estes Park.

Our mission is to provide an experience where men can speak openly and honestly about the challenges of living their Christian faith, encourage one another in supportive relationships and challenge each other to live more prayerful and holy lives.
