The Office of Evangelization and Formation offers retreats and events for reflection and faith formation to all ages.
For a current list of Retreats for Catholic Educators, please click here.
The retreats, mornings and evenings of reflection hosted via Zoom will be a time of prayer and pondering for the faithful of the Diocese of Allentown. For parish Directors of Religious Education, catechists, Catholic school administrators, principals, and teachers, these periods of reflection may take the place of the annual retreat and are part of the on-going formation and spiritual support provided for their important ministry to the students of the Diocese.
Below you will find each of the past mornings or evenings of reflection that feature a short spiritual reflection and a period of prayer.
