2022 National Clergy Couple Retreat

"Marriage and Ministry: A Seamless Embrace"

October 3-6, 2022

Hyatt Lodge • Oakbrook, IL


In the flurry of life, particularly as clergy couples, we may not often take the time to stop and attend to our marriage. This retreat will provide that opportunity, as couples will hear engaging brief talks on cultivating a healthy marriage, spend time alone "heart to heart," engage in small discussion groups with other clergy couples, share in fellowship, relax, worship together, and enjoy the setting of the Hyatt Lodge.

Our presenters include Fr. Harry and Kerry Pappas, Dr. George Stavros, Fr. Jerry & Helene Hall, and Fr. Timothy Pavlatos, who will all share from their areas of expertise and experience and then offer discussion questions and exercises for us all to consider privately with our spouses, followed by small group discussions with other couples on the connection of the topics with ministry.
