MOP Laity Retreats

Missionaries of the Poor also provide spiritual care for our friends and supporters around the world? We host seasonal laity retreats at our Mt. Tabor retreat center up in the mountains here in Jamaica.

Mt. Tabor Retreat Center

In 2004, the Missionaries of the Poor were given 70 acres of land on a mountaintop just outside of Kingston, Jamaica. This property was developed into a quiet and peaceful retreat center called “Mt. Tabor”. On the mountain we can get away from the noise of the city and enjoy silence for prayer, meditation and study.

The MOP invites the laity to participate in our silent retreats. We provide sleeping quarters, bathrooms and meals for the weekend, while also leading you in spiritual talks, daily prayers, celebration of the Mass, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, the recitation of the Holy Rosary and plenty of music! The retreats are conducted with a spirit of silence, though opportunities are arranged for reflection and conversation with other visitors. Our guests routinely call the experience inspiring and even life-changing. Come and see!
