Calendar of Retreats


2016 Retreats

Current Availability for private retreats:  One may wish to make a private retreat for one or more reasons such as: a time of rest from the hectic pace of the world, for quiet in order to better listen to God, for a time of reflection and discernment regarding situations and important decisions, to study, to seek God's healing grace, to pray with the monks, or simply to be with God. 

Please note:  We do not accept Sunday night guests.  It is a time for our monks to gather with their community.
