Group Retreats

August 11, 2020 – COVID-19 closure update from Sister Elisabeth:

We are looking forward to the time we can reopen!  We really miss welcoming guests and having you here with us.  Although we haven’t set a date for reopening yet, we are in regular conversation about it in light of available data.  When we do re-open, it will be slowly and with great care.

In the meantime, please check out our on-line offerings for this fall.  Also, if you wish spiritual direction, this can be arranged via Zoom.  Email us at or give us a call at (256) 734-8302 for more information. 



We host many types of groups sponsored by churches and religious organizations who bring their own educational or spirituality programs to the Benedictine Sisters Retreat Center.  Some not-for-profit groups also fit well with our mission and find a good home here for their programs.  Among the types of retreat groups we commonly host are prayer retreats, ministry team planning retreats, men’s retreats, women’s retreats, confirmation retreats, and many others.  We can accommodate both day meetings and overnight retreats, whether for a few hours or a few days.

To inquire about our hosting a retreat for your group, please contact us by way of the form below, by calling our office at (256) 734-8302, or by email.  Galleries of our three meeting rooms and our group overnight accommodations may be viewed here.  We look forward to hearing from you about the possibility of hosting your church’s or organization’s next retreat.


Because of our current closure and our uncertain date of re-opening, we are not currently taking new reservations for group retreats for the summer or fall of 2020.  We welcome inquiries for later dates.
