If you are new to retreat planning,

check out our Retreat Planning Tips.


Ms. Trish O’Connor, OP is experienced at designing and conducting spiritual retreats for adults, youth, and children. As a member of the lay branch of the Order of Preachers (Lay Dominicans), she is committed to prayer, study, community and the preaching mission. Epiclesis Consulting LLC offers her services to help you create events for spiritual growth and refreshment. Groups that can benefit from a retreat include faith-based clubs and organizations, parishes, and small faith communities. Even a group that doesn't consider itself a "religious" organization may wish to plan a "spiritual" event.

To get a feel for what type of retreat Trish may be able to conduct for your group, take a few minutes to browse our retreat offerings, such as the Stations on the Way services and the Deeper Wells repeatable retreat models for parishes, the Truth in Fiction retreat for storytellers, or the Forward to Normalretreat for people facing a major life transition. Epiclesis Consulting LLC even offers a YouTube ministry of mini-retreats in rich topics that can be booked in full format.

Don't forget to check the Current Specials page regularly for discounted rates on retreat models conducted personally by Trish at your facility. We are also developing “retreat in a box” programs: guides and materials that you can use to put on your own retreat, even if retreat ministry isn’t your gift! If you don’t see something listed that sounds quite like what your group is looking for, Trish can consult with you to design a special retreat just for your community.

Whether you are looking for an in-person retreat, a retreat in a box, or a customized retreat, click on the Contact link to send a message briefly describing your group’s goals and needs. Trish will get back to you quickly to help you schedule your event.
