Women’s Retreat

September 8th – 10th, 2017


Take a break from your day-to-day activity and join us at St. Anne Retreat Center! This is a great opportunity to grow in faith formation and spend the weekend bonding with other Catholic women.

Who Is Jesus To You? He’s the most written about man in all of history. His life has been chronicled in countless movies and books. Yet we often don’t stop and reflect on who he is to us as individuals. Deacon Dave Profitt will lead the retreat and help you discover the deeper meaning of Jesus in your life and how you can deepen your personal relationship with him.

 Friday: Doors open at 4PM. Retreat begins with 5:30PM dinner. Sunday: Mass and noon Departure. Cost is $150. Please remit check to St. Anne Retreat Center, 5275 St. Anne Drive, Melbourne, KY 41059, attn. Karen Little. Deadline to register is August 25.

Deacon Dave Profitt, a former Southern Baptist, converted to the Catholic faith 23 years ago. He is a strong voice for the evangelization of the Catholic faith. He was ordained in 2013. He is on the Board of Directors for Project Rachel. He served as Director of the Deacon Program for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati until accepting the role of Director of St. Anne Retreat Center in 2016. He has a Master’s of Science in Church Management from Villanova University. He had his first book published in 2014 (Gird Up Your Loins Like a Man: 12 Steps to Renew Your Catholic Faith) and is a contributing author to St. Anthony Messenger, The Messenger publication of the Diocese of Covington, and writes extensively for St. Timothy Church in Union KY, where he is assigned as a deacon.

Exciting Changes Coming to St. Anne

Recently, we began some renovation in the Convent Center at St. Anne. We are removing the old restroom and shower facilities on the 2nd and 3rd floor east wing and replacing them with new shower stalls and restroom facilities. These changes will help us better serve our guests who have mobility issues. We are also running new plumbing to better address the hot water needs of the guests. It’s a bit dusty, but that’s the price of progress. We hope to have the work completed by October of this fall. However, when you work in a building this old, you do come across some unexpected issues. Please keep us in your prayers that the work will be done well, on time and safely.

Thank you for visiting our website and we hope you come to visit the Retreat Center soon as well. Our mission is to provide a restful and meaningful experience as you encounter Christ through our retreat programs. St. Anne is an important part of the spiritual life of the Diocese of Covington. Your support for our programs and the Retreat Center are vital. Pray for us and our mission.
