Gather in the pristine setting of the Oblate Renewal Center for a weekend of camaraderie, learning and centering. Meet the friends you’ve made online, in person.

Our goal is to offer inspiring and thought-provoking events while leaving enough personal time to give you a chance to get to know others and yourself—from a fresh perspective.

Retreat events include eight minute Lightning Talks, a large scale group art project, readings, lectures, and an Impromptu Review of CST 2019 as theater. Plus a pop-up Self Portrait exhibit! Arrange a massage or take a walk after lunch!

The Center is located approximately three miles from the San Antonio International Airport and ten minutes north of our famous downtown Riverwalk, a perfect home base from which to explore the city.
