About this Event

Come join Frassati Fellowship for our Fall Retreat, "Called by Name," September 13-15, 2019, at Villa Maria Guadalupe!

The weekend includes daily Mass, all-night Eucharistic Adoration, time for Confession, praise and worship, talks, workshops, discussion groups, outdoor fun, and plenty of fellowship.

Registration will open at 12:00 Noon on Saturday, July 13. Please register before Saturday, August 17 to register at the discounted price of $185. At 12:00 Noon on August 17, the registration fee will increase to $205.

Retreat registration will close on August 24 at 12:00 Noon. Tickets may sell out before then.



This event is for individuals in their 20's and 30's. If you were born before September 13, 1979 or after September 15, 1999, you may not attend this retreat. You can find other great retreats and activities for Catholics at www.catholicnyc.com.


The retreat begins with check-in from 7:00pm to 8:00pm on Friday night, and ends at 4:00pm on Sunday afternoon. You must attend the retreat in its entirety. We are not able to accommodate retreatants arriving late, departing early, or leaving the retreat center for part of the weekend. Please do not make plans or travel arrangements for Sunday afternoon. This applies to those taking the bus and those taking personal vehicles as we will need all-hands-on-deck for cleanup of the retreat house--drivers included!


We are blessed to have a high level of interest in these retreats and we are grateful for the fruit that has been borne of this ministry. In order to share this opportunity with new retreatants, we are reserving 20 Women's and 20 Men's tickets for first-time attendees. You may select this ticket option if you are local to the New York City metro area and have never attended a Frassati Fellowship of NYC retreat.


If tickets are listed as sold out, please opt for a Waitlist ticket and we will contact you if and when spots open up. We will prioritize requests from retreatants who are local to the New York City metro area. Please do not make arrangements to travel to this retreat if you are on the Waitlist or have not yet registered.


The retreat registration fee includes accommodations at Villa Maria on Friday and Saturday nights, as well as six meals, all retreat activities, the eventbrite processing fee, as well as bus transportation for up to 45 retreatants. (There will be no additional charge for those who take the bus. This is a change from our last retreat.)

If you desire to attend the Fall Retreat but are experiencing financial hardship, we invite you to apply for scholarship assistance. Prayerfully consider the amount you are able to contribute and email retreats@frassati.nyc to request a half scholarship ($92.50 scholarship, you pay $92.50) or full scholarship. Please briefly explain the specific financial reasons prompting you to apply for scholarship assistance and describe your past and present involvement in Frassati Fellowship. Inquire by 12:00 Noon on Friday, July 12 for priority consideration. We will prayerfully consider all requests received and allocate funds in accordance with available resources. Please be assured that the information you submit will be held in strict confidence.


Parking is available at Villa Maria Guadalupe for those who plan to drive to the retreat.

Transportation by bus will be available to and from NYC for 45 retreatants. THERE WILL BE NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE FOR BUS TRANSPORTATION FOR THE FIRST 45 PEOPLE TO SIGN UP FOR THE BUS. If the bus fills up, remaining retreatants will need to make their own travel arrangements.

If you indicate that you need transportation when purchasing your ticket, we will follow up by email to confirm your space on the bus or to offer other options.

The bus will depart at 6:15 p.m. on Friday from St. Vincent Ferrer Church (869 Lexington Ave, between 65th and 66th Streets) to Villa Maria. Please be on time if you sign up for the bus. We will return to the same location on Sunday evening.


Under "Donation to Scholarship Fund," you have the option of donating to support our brothers and sisters who are experiencing financial hardship and need financial assistance to attend this retreat. If you are able to donate here, please do! We are hoping to raise $1000 to fund three full scholarships and five half scholarships.


Registration is non-transferable--only the person registered for the retreat can attend. Last-minute cancellations make it difficult to find someone to take your spot. Please be considerate of others who may want to attend and only sign up if you fully intend to come on this retreat. Nevertheless, we understand that sometimes plans change. If you cannot attend, please let us know ASAP.

These are the deadlines for receiving a full or partial refund if you cancel:

Until August 17 at Noon: Full Refund

August 17 to August 24 at Noon: $75 refund

August 24 to August 31 at Noon: $50 refund

August 31 to September 7 at Noon: $25 refund

Thanks for your interest, and may God bless you!
