The next Head to Heart Workshop (H2H) will be held at the Marianist Retreat & Conference Center in Eureka, Missouri on November 6 - 8, 2023.  H2H is an engaging, interactive experience that allows participants to learn to live the Marianist charism in everyday experiences and to deepen personal growth and discernment in their call to Marianist Ministry.

Participation is by invitation from the administrator of your Marianist-sponsored ministry.  Participants should have at least one year's experience in Marianist ministry.

Participation Fees:

Each sponsored ministry is allowed to send two participants to this workshop.  No participation fees are assessed for these first two participants.  Space permitting, sponsored ministries may send additional participants.  Contact the Marianist Office of Sponsorship (314-338-7229) for pricing for additional participants.


The workshop begins with a group dinner at 5:00 pm (Central Time) on Monday, November 6 and concludes on Wednesday, November 8 at 9:00 pm (Central Time).  Return flights should be scheduled for Thursday, November 9.  Participants are expected to be present for all sessions and activities.
