Calendar of Retreats
CONSTRUCTION HAS BEGUN!
That is really good news!
We are in the process of renovating the Abbey’s guesthouse and retreat center, adding a new wing that will offer a parking-level lobby and meeting rooms, a commercial kitchen and dining room, and new retreat rooms for overnight guests.
In a second phase, the existing building will be renovated. This means the facility will be closed from June through February 2019 while the new building is tied into the existing structure and necessary upgrades are complete.
The newly renovated guesthouse and retreat center is worth waiting for. In addition to a hilltop level lobby, it will offer a variety of conference rooms, as well as greater space for private reflection, both indoors and out.
A webcam is available on the Abbey website to watch the progress. We’d love for you to follow along!
Please note: The turnaround and elevator from the south side parking level to the Abbey mall and church level will be closed from June 11 through the end of construction. There are spaces reserved on the mall level on the north side of the Damian Center, #9 on this Walking Tour map, for vehicles with disabled parking permits.

(please note pricing has not been set)
You must be an oblate to attend these retreats
Oblates of Saint Benedict are Christians who have experienced in some way a call to embrace Benedictine spirituality. After a time of prayer and discernment they have desired a more formal, permanent commitment to a monastic community. By making this formal self-giving to Christ in communion with a monastic community, the oblate embraces the time-tested traditions and values of the Benedictine way. Oblates are united to the prayer and good works of the monastery to which they are associated while they continue to live out their Christian vocation in the world.
For more information on becoming on oblate, you can contact LaVern Hayworth, Associate Director of Oblates, at 541-567-9708.
