Godsplaining Men’s Retreat

Join Godsplaining Friars, Fr. Patrick Briscoe and Fr. Bonaventure Chapman, for an empowering weekend retreat designed specifically for men seeking to explore the resilience in their lives. Camp Chosatonga, set against the backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains, offers a unique opportunity for men to gather together and embark on a journey of self-discovery and growth.

Through Mass, Adoration, talks, hikes, and more, you will explore the true essence of virtue—the courage to face adversity, the wisdom to discern right from wrong, and the integrity to live with authenticity and purpose.

Whether you’re grappling with the pressures of work, family, or personal struggles, the Saving Stoicism and the Struggle for Real Virtue men’s retreat offers a sanctuary where you can find renewal. Join us for a weekend of spiritual growth and authentic brotherhood as we journey together toward a deeper understanding of what it means to live a life of true virtue in the service of Christ and others.
