“Let all guests who arrive be received like Christ, for He is going to say, ‘I came as a guest, and you received Me’” (Matthew 25:35) Saint Benedict’s Rule for Monasteries, Chapter 53

Rooms in our Retreat House are available by reservation to men and women who wish to spend several days with us in quietness and prayer. There are no conferences, nor is there a rigid schedule to follow. Weekday retreats begin on Monday at 3 pm and end on Friday by 9:30 am. Weekend retreats are from Friday at 3 pm through Sunday at 3 pm. Reservations may be made by letter, telephone or email.

The opportunity for enjoying silence and solitude is a special part of your retreat. Please share this with the monks by helping maintain the quiet of the surroundings and respecting the privacy of the monastic quarter
