“Whether you do it for your people or do it for yourself, just take a weekend off from your ministry & make an encounter. It was the most important weekend that I spent in my 25 years of priesthood. I really believe that those whom I have served as a pastor since my weekend would agree.” Fr. Dennis Hughes
“I gained a profound respect for the Sacrament of Marriage. In a ministry where almost all of a priest's time is spent with people who are, will be, or have been married,
this understanding I gained from the Weekend has been invaluable.” Fr. John Curran
“I began to understand just how important love was in my life. The fact that people loved me and that it was all right for me to love in return,
was the beginning of a major transformation to fullness of life in my priesthood.” Bishop John J. Kaising, D. D.
