Learn from the Master.

Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life." There is better model of how to live an extraordinary Catholic life! And so, we want to encourage you to learn more from the Master about how to live, know, and share our faith. Through attending a GalileeU in-person or virtual session and taking advantage of our unique retreat opportunities, we hope that everyone who attends GalileeU leaves renewed in their own walk with Jesus Christ, inspired and equipped to confidently live, defend, and share their faith with those around them.


Why GalileeU?

Eighty percent of Jesus’ public ministry took place in the region of Galilee where he called ordinary fishermen to become transformed disciples spreading the Gospel. Galilee is where Jesus called his disciples to follow him, where he formed them to live as his disciples, and also where he sent them out into the world to share his love with the world. In this spirit, GalileeU is designed for Catholics in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee to experience that same "Galilee" transformation. 


Make Jesus' Mission Yours

Each Catholic seeking to grow more in our faith ought to take seriously the task of sharing our faith with others. Through a deepening in the knowledge of the faith, powerful trainings in sharing the Gospel, and opportunities to encounter and learn from the Master, those attending a GalileeU session or retreat will experience a deepening of their own faith, while also becoming more confident and equipped to bring Christ’s saving message to their families, friends, co-workers, and neighbors.

GalileeU Sessions.

GalileeU sessions are offered through three main "tracks" of deeper formation: Living our Faith, Knowing our Faith, and Sharing our Faith. While we hope participants will join us for each track and for the whole track, you are welcome to join us as you are able. GalileeU sessions are offered in-person or virtually via zoom. Whether you are in-person or attending virtually, there will be great content and connection with others in every session.

We encourage you to join us in-person if possible, for the most interactive experience of community, content, and prayer. To provide the best experience possible for participants, all sessions are either totally in-person or totally online, and are offered on different dates. Due to the experiential learning nature of our sessions, we are unable to live-stream in-person sessions or offer recordings of online sessions. In other words, plan to be with us live, or plan to join us the next time we offer the session. Learn more about the various sessions and retreat opportunities below, as well as our current schedule of offerings.

Retreat Encounters.

Retreats are an incredible way to encounter Christ through the sacraments, prayer, and community. Each Catholic seeking to grow more in our faith ought to take some more significant time every year to encounter Christ. This can easily be done through a "retreat" experience, usually through a day or weekend away from normal life. GalileeU offers a variety of unique retreat experiences that are designed to be more of an extraordinary moment that leads to living a more faithful day-to-day life. The GalileeU retreat offerings help participants know their God-given gifts, find healing for past hurts, and specifically help married couples in their life with Christ at the center of their marriage. 

Below are the retreat experiences that are currently offered through GalileeU. Participants are welcome to join us for as many of them as they choose. We hope you join us for a retreat this year!

Called & Gifted


In your Baptism and Confirmation you received gifts that our world needs. Do you know yours?

These gifts of the Holy Spirit, called charisms, are important clues to the particular mission God has for you. There is no greater joy than living by His grace in the blessed intersection of your gifts and the world's need! Join over 100,000 Catholics around the world who have begun to discern their charisms through the Catherine of Sienna Institute's Called & Gifted workshop

Registration fee for Called and Gifted is $40, which covers materials and meals. No one will be denied due to financial circumstances.

Join us on April 30, 2022 at St. James Parish in Mukwonago, WI

Devoted Marriage


Every Catholic Marriage needs moments of enrichment, renewal, and a deeper understanding having Christ at the center of your marriage. GalileeU offers a variety of "mini-retreats" designed to help married couples encounter Christ in a deeper way through the great gift of their sacramental marriage. Find out more information on how you can attend below!

Join us on Saturday, February 19, 2022 at St. Peter Catholic Church in Slinger, WI for Devoted Marriage: The Journey of Marital Forgiveness led by Fr. John Burns of the Archdicoese of Milwaukee.

Healing the Whole Person


As we grow as disciples on mission, we accompany others who are hurting. Many struggle with anxiety, depression, anger, addiction, illness, or patterns of sin they can't seem to break. The closer we grow in relationship with our Lord, He also shows us our own brokenness. Do you know how to help others (and yourself) bring these wounds to God and receive His gifts of healing and peace? In Healing the Whole Person, Sr. Miriam James Heidland, SOLT, and Dr. Bob Schuchts (author of Be Healed) will help us to understand and receive the healing our Lord longs to give through the sacraments and prayer in the heart of the Catholic Church. 

Our next in-person Healing the Whole Person in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee is April 7-9, 2022 at Holy Apostles in New Berlin. Registration coming soon.
