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. We welcome you to join us for one to four nights, depending on your schedule.

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