Intense and joyful 8 day “institutes” that run the gamut of two days hiking and camping through all-night adoration and outdoor Stations of the Cross. Every day is structured by the monastic liturgy of the Brothers of St. John, and offers participants the opportunity to enter into the study of Philosophy and Theology, and form lasting friendships. With programs for both teens and young adults, the Summer Institutes ignite a fire of love in young people for Christ and His Church.
Young adults ages 18 to 35 can take a one- to four-day weekend to dive deeper into their faith through Philosophy and Theology classes given by the Brothers of St. John, Eucharistic Adoration, the Liturgy of the Hours, Holy Mass, Lectio Divina, and much more. St. John Paul the Great called our generation “the martyrs of the third millennium.” What does that mean for those of us who are called to be in the world 24/7, single lay persons and young parents, raising families and/or working 35 to 70 hours per week – to be in the world, but not of it?
A contemplative formation for the New Evangelization. Ecclesia combines all that Eagle Eye has to offer into one amazing month. Pray, Hike, study theology and philosophy, form life-long friendships, and be prepared to set the world on fire! Put out into the deep this summer with the Ecclesia Institute.

Since 2014, Eagle Eye has offered annual Pilgrimages to Associates and friends. We have traveled the Polish homeland of Pope St. John Paul the Great and St. Faustina… prayed at the cell of St. Maximilian Kolbe… meditated upon the lush Irish vistas where St. Patrick preached… touched the waters where St. Damien of Molokai ministered to lepers… sailed on the Sea of Galilee… walked the Way of the Cross… and encountered our Lord most profoundly in Mass at His tomb.
