The Spirituality Center is a place to seek solitude, quiet and peace located on the west end of our monastery grounds. You are invited to our Center for individual or group retreats, spiritual direction and a variety of faith and educational presentations, workshops and seminars. Women and men of all faith denominations and cultures are welcome! 

The monastic grounds and sacred spaces provide an atmosphere for prayer, quiet reflection, reading and relaxation. Guests frequent the labyrinthwooded walking trails, prairie and farm land that are adjacent to the Spirituality Center. Whether you are here for a few hours, a day or longer, you are invited to join the monastic community for the Liturgy of the Hours and Eucharist.

The Spirituality Center, a ministry of Saint Benedict’s Monastery, St. Joseph, Minnesota, responds to the human longing for God and invites others to join the monastic community in deepening relationships with God, self, others and all creation.

Trusting in the presence of the Holy Spirit and grounded in the Christian Benedictine monastic tradition, the Spirituality Center will be a prophetic and contemplative presence in Central Minnesota.
