PRIVATE AND DIRECTED RETREATS
|BACK TO RETREATS|
“Come away by yourselves…and rest a while.” (Mk. 6:31)
Private Retreats provide time in a supportive and contemplative atmosphere, with opportunities for prayer and Spiritual Direction. They are uniquely designed by each individual retreatant. Maximum stay for a Private Retreat without Spiritual Direction is 3 days.
Directed Retreats are structured and guided with the help of a spiritual director, who is a listening and supportive person.
Spiritual direction is available in English and Spanish. Our experienced spiritual directors are available to guide you in the retreat process. Number of sessions will be determined by availability.
Please contact us at least three (3) weeks in advance of your desired directed retreat time.
Please note: We no longer offers 30-day retreats. We do offer Personal Sabbatical Time for Women Religious that can be tailored to fit the schedule of the guest and our center schedule.
Please contact Suzanne Buckley for information on this program.
FEES FOR RETREATS
Overnight retreats include meals when available, a private single bedroom and dormitory-style bathroom.

Our retreats require advance planning and expenditures such as setting staffing schedules, financial administration, and other costs. A $50 deposit is required to reserve your space for a private retreat. This deposit is non-refundable and non-transferrable.
MINI RETREAT TIME
You can come for an Unplugged Day, or arrange to visit for a few peaceful hours. Please call ahead to check availability. We are not able to host outside guests on certain days due to retreat group and hosted group schedules. Donations are appreciated.
