Calendar of Retreats


2018 Retreats

CONSTRUCTION HAS BEGUN! Our renovation/addition to the Saint Benedict Guesthouse and Retreat Center has begun. Please bear with us as we embark on this project. There may be extra noise and dust during your stay. We will keep this section updated so you can stay informed of our progress. Check the main Guesthouse page for a link to the Webcam so you can watch the progress.

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.
