"To go on pilgrimage really means to step out of ourselves in order to encounter God where he has revealed himself".

Pope Benedict XVI, 2010.

In the Year of St. Joseph

With a Father's Heart: that is how Joseph loved Jesus, whom all four Gospels refer to as “the son of Joseph”.

Human Skills: Life is a Pilgrimage

The “Human Skills” Program is a three workshop series to enhance your Human Skills. The methodology follows an Active Learning approach, where participants and facilitators co-create together. These workshops are not a series of talks. This program is not a set of lessons.


Because Life is a Pilgrimage, and human skills are an essential part of the Pilgrims’ skill set. At CRETIO, we believe in Unity of Live as a critical aspect of development. Besides Spiritual Development and Professional network activities, CRETIO organizes Personal Development sessions and programs.
