Passionist Alumni Reunion
August 16-18, 2019
Put it on your calendar right now so you don’t forget. Those of us who spent time together in Passionist formation at Warrenton, Louisville, Chicago, Detroit, St. Paul, St. Gabriel’s in Iowa, Normandy, Missouri or St. Meinrad in Indiana, are coming together for an “all class” reunion at the St. Paul of the Cross Passionist Retreat and Conference Center in Detroit, Michigan the third weekend of August. At our age time moves quickly, so it’s not too soon to give it a priority place on your summer schedule.

We hope this one will be a little different than before. The retreat Center offers us a comfortable place to spend more time together telling those stories we have told fifty times before. Or share the latest story about that special grandchild, interesting trip or significant life event.
The meals, prepared and served by the renowned chefs at the retreat center will come as part of the $ 98/person “package deal “—a value at twice the price.
So, bring your spouse or someone else special in your life. They are guaranteed to forge new friendships and rekindle others built up over years of rolling their eyes at “that great story” from back in the seminary. “Did I ever tell you the one about…” “Yes, dear but I will need another glass of wine before you start.”

A word about donations….
On the registration form, you will notice an additional line to add a donation to your registration fee.
Each time we’ve had a reunion, attendees have been very generous and added some extra dollars to their fees. That has allowed us to provide financial assistance to some of our brothers so they could attend the reunion. Any remaining funds would go to the Province. Donations are always optional. They will be used charitably and wisely.
If you have accommodation or dietary considerations:
Please contact Carl DeLage at [email protected], or 313-550-8196.
