Executive Retreat

Thursday February 1st (pm) - Sunday February 4th (pm), 2024 @ UCLA Arrowhead Executive Retreat (Los Angeles)

This Executive Retreat is intended for senior-level professional men. Senior executive invitational retreats are conducted by priests of Opus Dei, a personal prelature of the Catholic Church. The founder of Opus Dei, St. Josemaria Escrivá, was canonized by St. Pope John Paul II in 2002. These silent retreats consist of daily Mass, spiritual talks by a priest of Opus Dei as an aid to prayer, adoration, rosary, stations of the cross, and practical talks by laymen.  In addition, a unique feature of these invitation retreats is a social on Saturday evening. These retreat are sponsored by Windsor House, an educational, non-profit corporation dedicated to the intellectual, cultural and spiritual development of professional men.

Why a Retreat? Who has the time?

Making an annual retreat — a couple of days spent in silence, prayer, and reflection — involves a sacrifice for busy people.

Nonetheless, countless busy people make time for a retreat in the same way they make time for anything else important in their lives. Every year busy professional men enjoy a retreat and see it as a valuable investment to refresh their spirit. Year after year, the experience of attending a retreat provides benefits, which include:

  • A more intimate friendship with Jesus Christ through prayer and reception of the sacraments;
  • A clearer perspective on the course of their lives—–past, present and future;
  • Insight into what needs improvement in their family and professional lives in order to lead others effectively;
  • Self-knowledge gained through spiritual direction;
  • A return to everyday life with a greater sense of full confidence in God.

Retreats provide an opportunity to reflect on everyday life in the light of Christian principles. An atmosphere of personal prayer and recollection is maintained during the retreat. Each full day of the retreat includes Holy Mass and several conferences in the chapel, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and recitation of the Rosary. The priest conducting the retreat is available for the Sacrament of Reconciliation and spiritual guidance.

1. What should I bring?

Your rosary and everything else, including a selection of spiritual reading materials, will be provided.

2. What is the appropriate attire?

For Mass, we request a sports jacket. Otherwise, business casual.

3. Is it really a “silent” retreat?

We do request silence in our common areas during the free time, to facilitate recollection and maintain an atmosphere of prayer. Those who wish to engage in conversation are advised to do so on other parts of the grounds. There will be a break in silence on Saturday evening to socialize over libations.

4. When can I go to Confession?

There are scheduled times when the priest is available for confession, but one can also, sign up for personal spiritual direction and confession in between activities.
