The opening time for registering will be 12:01 AM on July 15, 2017.

PLEASE, PLEASE! verify your e-mail address BEFORE you send in your registration. This has been a significant problem in each of the previous years. Incomplete or incorrect addresses cause us additional AND unnecessary work. Thank you for taking the time to review your application in its entirety before you click "send".

Special Attention regarding billing for retreats

A number of deacons/deacon couples choose to pay for their retreats directly instead of having their parishes pay the fees.  They often request the Retreat Committee to bill them directly instead of the parish, unfortunately due to the large number of registrations and many changes made throughout the year, it is not possible for us to bill individual deacons directly any longer.  Effective with the 2018 registrations please contact your parish administrator if you wish to make such an arrangement.

If it is your decision to pay for your retreat yourself, then you should reimburse your parish directly for the associated fees, which for the 2018 retreat year are:
Deacon Couple: $675.00
Single Deacon:  $550.00

Thank you for your understanding.
