Young adults in their 20s and 30s are invited to join the Portland Chapter of Young Catholic Professionals for our Advent Retreat at Mount Angel Abbey on Saturday, December 4.


The day opens with optional 8 am Mass with the Benedictine monks, followed by a conference on Saint Joseph, a light to the world. The day will also include Liturgy of the Hours, prayer, lunch, Confessions, and small group discussion. The retreat will wrap up at 2 pm, followed by an optional gathering at the Benedictine Brewery. Sign ups will remain open until November 23 or until space is full. The retreat is free but donations will be accepted.


As the year of Saint Joseph concludes, we look forward to hearing from Brother Louis Marie de Montfort about Saint Joseph's role as a husband and father, and how we can follow Saint Joseph's example to be a light to the world during this Advent Season. We are also excited to hear from our YCP Chaplain, Fr. Hans Mueller, throughout the day!


Guests are welcome to stay overnight at the Abbey Guesthouse. Contact or 503.845.3025 for more information and pricing.
