The Spirituality Center offers one- to several-day private, directed and group retreats as well as spiritual direction and faith enrichment programs.

Private Retreats

Gift yourself with some time away! An air-conditioned facility, spacious grounds and a wooded area provide atmosphere for prayer, quiet, reflection and relaxation. You are invited to worship with the monastic community in the daily Eucharist and the Liturgy of the Hours.

During your private retreat, you may wish to meet with a spiritual director for an additional $50 an hour.

Opportunities to learn more about Centering Prayer, lectio divina and journaling are also available upon request.

If you are interested in theraputic massage, we will give you the names and telephone numbers of people you can call to arrange a massage.

Please indicate your desire for these services at the time of registration. Also, at time of registration, please indicate that you will be making this retreat at the Spirituality Center. If you're interested in the hermitage, which has limited availability, click here.
