The goal of the Contemplatives of Saint Joseph for its retreats is to create the ambiance for contemplative prayer and to inspire those who attend to realize that they can grow closer to God via contemplative prayer no matter what their vocation in the world may be.

Our retreats are offered at retreat houses. During the retreats, the COSJ offers the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, spiritual talks, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, confession, much time for solitude and silence, and guidelines for continuing one's spiritual journey.

COSJ retreats are centered on a specific theme that is communicated in advance through the retreat center and featured on their website and other communications. COSJ retreats are usually held on weekends.
