Saturday Morning Retreats
Saturday morning retreats are simple prayerful mornings during which we share the spirit and spirituality of MDM with people who are new to the Mission. It is open to individuals, couples, families and groups such as ACTs teams, cenacles and prayer groups. These mornings are offered two to three times per year.

12:00 PM – CONCLUSION
The Mission is a monastery; it is consecrated ground; it is our Community’s home. We welcome anyone who wants to visit the Mission. We simply ask that they respect our request for clothing that is appropriate for a place consecrated to Our Lord and His Blessed Mother, and in coming to Mass that they dress in a manner that shows reverence for the occasion. Father wears his vestments, the altar servers put on their albs, and the congregation wears clothes that are appropriate for attending Mass.
BELOW THE KNEE
NO TANK TOPS
NO LOW-CUT NECKLINES
NO MID-THIGH HEMLINES
Also, be alerted that the Mission terrain is fairly rough and rocky, with few paved walk ways. Good walking shoes are helpful; high heels are not. We appreciate your help in making others aware of our request for appropriate dress while attending Mass at the Mission.
We think Our Lord appreciates it too.
