We are The Ite Project and we believe in doing Catholicism


We believe in activation.


We believe in contemplation.


We believe the fullness of the Truth brings the fullness of life.


And we live it.  Every day.  


Twice yearly we grow together in holiness and community. The Ite Project retreats provide encounters with the Living God for young adults to enrich their spirituality and to develop personal relationships with one another.

The weekend-long Fall Retreat in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park includes hiking, bonfires, spiritual talks, outdoor Adoration and opportunities for deep prayer and community.

The Lenten day-long retreat offers silence and guided meditation to reconnect to our Life Spring in a bustling world. 

These retreats are evenly spread during a calendar year to provide consistent opportunities to grow in one's personal relationship with the Lord.


The Ite Project Missions focus on the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy. Each month our community engages in The Great Commission to serve the Body of Christ-- especially the neediest among us. Sometimes we run clothing drives and we pass around kindness to strangers in a mall with flowers. Sometimes we repaint and restore homes and ministries. Sometimes we send care packages to needy people or help care for the sick and the elderly. Whatever we do, we embody and bring Him to those who need Him the Most. 


The Ite Project provides consistent opportunity to help others develop their spirituality. Adoremus is a young adult contemplative Adoration which includes a short homily by a gifted priest, healing prayer teams and the opportunity for Confession. Fireside Chats  with Father are interactive events during which servant priests give their time to answer questions on specific topics and build community. The Ite Project also hosts Bible studies, prayer opportunities and social events throughout the year.

What we do speaks for who we are.
