Cancellation Policy

We cherish every contribution to our ministry and our missionaries work hard to ensure every dollar is put to work helping those most in need.  When we receive your registration, we believe it is your full intention to support our efforts to meet those less fortunate in our communities. Because the Marian Missionaries of Divine Mercy has limited support staff, we do not have the ability to issue refunds. If you must cancel, you may transfer your registration to another party or donate your reservation to someone less fortunate who may want to attend –  this is possible up to the closing of registration, JUNE 19, 2017 at 12:00pm (Noon).  After the close of registration, cancellations are no longer transferable and are considered a donation to the Marian Missionaries of Divine Mercy. ALL EVENT REGISTRATIONS ARE FINAL.  We thank you for understanding.

Participant Disclaimer

We care about you and want to make sure this retreat is perfect for you in many ways.

Our retreats may be a challenging experience for some participants that have difficulty ambulating. There is a lot of walking involved at most of the facilities we contract with.  Strength, stamina, walking up and down stairs, and walking to designated event activity areas are part of your weekend. We would like for you to be aware of this physical nature so that if you have medical conditions that make it difficult for you to walk fair distances you are aware.

Special Requests

We work hard to make your Mercy & Mary Weekend Retreat a success. However, it is not always possible to meet the needs of every individual. If you have particular items or foods that you may need during your weekend, we highly recommend that you plan to have these with you.

Photos of the Activities

Photos taken at our retreats help us in promoting future events so that we can reach more souls.

While participating in the retreat activities, your photo may be taken and posted on our social media platforms. May we kindly ask you to inform us if you wish for any photos to be removed from our site.




All roommates must register and pay at the same time.  No online registration or form will be processed nor any room assigned unless ALL roommates listed have registered together online or by hard copy.  This includes double rooms. Note on the form ONLY the names of roommates who are paying at the same time.  We cannot guarantee adjoining rooms.  If only one check or credit card is used, clearly list names of participants and their contact information.  We will not hold space for a requested roommate who has not registered and not paid. 

If one roommate cancels, others must arrange for a substitute within one week or pay for a new type of room (i.e., if one person in a double cancels and no sub is found, the remaining roommate must pay for a single room.)  Inform our office of any changes within one week of your cancellation.

For double occupancy rooms, rooming assignments will be matched in accordance with the preferred individual you selected at the time of your registration.  In the event you did not select a rooming partner(s), we will do our best to match you with another retreat participant.  In rare occasions, rooming partners might be irritating in their sleep habits or other activities. The Marian Missionaries of Divine Mercy cannot foresee these situations nor be responsible.  There are no refunds.  We thank you for understanding.


*One ticket at the double room rate is for one of the individuals staying in the room. The second roommate must also purchase a ticket at the double room rate.
****PLEASE NOTE: We have run out of double rooms with private bathrooms. Based on availability, your bathroom may be shared with others!
We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.
