Designated parking lots on the north side of the campus are for all groups visiting. Since you have reserved Casas 5-6, you may park in the carports and driveways of each Casa. You may also utilize street parking around those casas as well. Included with this letter is a map for you to see parking locations and familiarize yourself with the campus. 


For the safety and security of our guests, our gate and Casas are code protected. We have provided the codes you will need for your stay. Please share them with your group. We will have the gate open when your group arrives on Friday, August 24 from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM.

Note: If any person associated with your group needs to come into the CCFC when the gate is closed, they must use the gate code provided to you or call you first. Please have someone ready to meet that person once parked. For your safety, we do not open the gate during events or when our office has closed.

are there ACCOMMODATIONS available for married couples? 

Yes! We have a limited private rooms (2 twin beds or 1 full-sized bed) available. To request a private room for you and your spouse, please contact us directly.

Can I request my own private room? 

Unfortunately, our private rooms are now booked. They are only available to those whom pre-registered for them. 

I plan on flying in. Where are the nearest airports located? 

The 2 nearest airports to the Catholic Conference and Formation Center are:

In regular traffic, Dallas Lovefield is 17 minutes away from the conference center. DFW Airport is 30 minutes from the conference center. If arriving during rush hour, expect the trip to last up to 30 minutes. 

I can’t be there for the entire retreat. Should I still come?

It’s best if you can make the full program, but you’re always welcome to join us as you are able; however, if you wish to serve on an Arise Prayer Team at Mary Immaculate, full participation is required.

I’m not comfortable praying with others. Will this be a problem?

We want you to feel safe and comfortable throughout the retreat; however, this leadership retreat focuses on teaching you how to pray with others. While we will not force you to do anything you are not comfortable with, if you do choose to opt out of prayer sessions, your experience will be hindered.
