Cana Colony: Family Retreat

We regret that the Cana Family Camp is cancelled for the summer of 2021. Be assured of our prayers for your family for a holy, safe and fun summer.

A very special outreach of Madonna House is for families. Today with so many influences working against family values, fathers, mothers and children need help and support in living the Gospel. Our program, called Cana Colony, provides a unique way for families to learn together how to incarnate the Gospel in daily life. This retreat takes place in the summer months.

Discern Becoming A Priest
Madonna House conducts a seven-month program of formation for men interested in the vocation of priesthood in the Catholic Church. The men live and work with the Madonna House community in a routine much like the one outlined for volunteer working guests, with the addition of special classes.
Associate Priests
As Madonna House has grown, many diocesan priests have asked to become associated with our apostolate, living out the spirit of The Little Mandate in their home dioceses. We now have more than 125 priests, deacons, bishops and archbishops who are Madonna House Associates
