Welcome to Dominus Vobiscum Retreat Centre. Through the participation and efforts of volunteers, retreat centre families, and in collaboration with the Foundation of Catholic Community Services and the Newman Centre, the retreat centre has been transformed into a marvellous site for Christian families to gather during the summer. The retreat centre remains a “work in progress”, operated on a tight budget and staffed by volunteers.
Nazareth Family Apostolate makes use of the Dominus Vobiscum facilities. Therefore, it is important that we respect the Centre's policies.
