Group Retreats

Front of Abbey church

The Saint Benedict Guesthouse and Retreat Center at Mount Angel Abbey is a destination for many who seek respite from worldly pressures and who seek to reconnect with God on a deeper and more personal level. The Abbey and its Sacred Liturgy is a place in which to drink deeply from the well of spiritual renewal. Retreats, workshops and special events at the Abbey bring together people of different cultures and backgrounds from around the world.
