Pilgrimages & Retreats

Pilgrimages & Retreats


Pilgrimages and retreats are wonderful ways to grow in our Catholic faith. Watch the Bulletin, Facebook and this website for upcoming  opportunities hosted by Kaukauna Catholic Parishes and more. Priests and/or deacons typically take part in all pilgrimages and retreats. Contact Deacon Bruce Corey with questions about past or upcoming pilgrimages and retreats (920-766-1445 or dcnbcorey@kaucp.org.) We will also post teen and young-adult retreats on this site when available.


International Pilgrimages

Some of our past international pilgrimages have been to Italy, The Holy Land and Ireland. We look forward to making plans for our next pilgrimage soon. Start saving your dollars! 

National Pilgrimages

Several years back, we traveled to Conway, Michigan, to spend time at the Augustine Center Retreat House, visit the National Shrine of the Cross in the Woods in Indian River, MI, and take part in the annual Labor Day 5-mile walk over the Mackinac Bridge.  We hope to make this journey again in the future.  We had daily Mass, great food and visited wonderful sites. And we made great friendships.

Local Pilgrimages

One of our popular local pilgrimages is our annual walk/bike to The Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion, Wisconsin. The weekend of September 13-15, 2019, will be our 9th annual 50-mile journey. We stay at very nice locations each evening, have great meals, and a support team and porta-potty come with us the entire way. We have prayer services, rosaries, chaplets and daily Masses, including a closing liturgy at the Shrine on Sunday afternoon.  All of this for just $15-$20 per person each day. This annual pilgrimage has created many long-lasting friendships. Watch for details to come soon!

In-house Retreats

Whether you have or have not experienced a CRHP Retreat (Christ Renews His Parish), this might be the perfect time for you to sign up again or for the first time. For the past eight years, Kaukauna Catholic Parishes have been hosting men's and women's retreats right at the parishes, and lives have been changed. The CRHP is now called Welcome! CRHP 2.0, and we are delighted to offer these new retreats at the Elizabeth Ministry Retreat Center on 8th St. in Kaukauna.  Expect to be filled with the Holy Spirit after attending this two-day retreat!  Contact Deacon Bruce Corey at 766-1445 or dcnbcorey@kaucp.org for men and Brittany Schoeder at 766-1445 or bschoeder@kaucp.org for women.
