April 26-28, 2023 • Kilcoy Castle, Inverness (UK)
Note: This is a retreat is open to priests in the UK ordained in the last five years • If you’re like most recently-ordained priests, the first few years of your priesthood must have been quite hectic: chances are, you’ve taken on many parish (and even diocesan) responsibilities, adapting to our rapidly-changing culture and the need for new evangelistic methods, and growing into leadership roles at a rapid pace. If this sounds like you, Divine Renovation would love to invite you to a leadership retreat this 26-28 April 2023. Enjoy the beautiful setting of Kilcoy Castle near Inverness as you spend three days of prayer, worship, fellowship with brother priests, and dedicated leadership coaching from Divine Renovation’s Matt Regitz and Dr. Hannah Vaughan-Spruce.
This retreat is made available at no cost to you, thanks to the generous support of a friend of Divine Renovation. To sign up, please email us at [email protected].
Sunday, April 30, 2023 • 5:30 PM • St. Elizabeth of Portugal Church, Richmond

If you're a priest, looking for a time to casually connect with other mission-minded priests can be difficult. That's why we're inviting you to one of our Leadership Lunches for priests, where you will connect with a small group of priests from across the UK over lunch, hear from one of our amazing keynote speakers, and engage in a lively Q&A and conversation on mission, evangelization, and parish renewal.
Register today, invite a brother priest with you, and be encouraged with fresh insights as you bring renewal to your parish!

Priests and parish leaders across North America want to see their parishes come alive. But the reality is that when hard work and a conviction for mission and evangelization take priority, it can be easy for those in leadership positions to neglect their own need for rest and spiritual rejuvenation – leading to burnout, fatigue and even being discouraged from mission altogether.
This is why you're invited to our May From the Trenches event, where you will:
- Hear from Fr. Justin Huang and Jake Khym on the importance of rest in a ministry context
- Learn how to avoid burnout when you're committed to mission for the long-haul
- Discover ways you can promote a culture of sabbath in your parish
So, register today!

Please note: this online event is exclusive to priests.
Preaching is the best way to reach the hearts of your parishioners — and as a priest, you have this opportunity every Sunday. What are the best practices for crafting homilies that inspire conversion? How might a preaching team help you in honing your skills as a preacher? What steps are other priests taking now that they've never learned in the seminary?
Join Fr. Chris Ryan and Fr. Simon Lobo at our upcoming online event for priests on Thursday, May 18 where we'll dive into these topics.
