May 27, 2020 – COVID-19 closure update:
The Retreat Center remains closed to both groups and individual guests due to the coronavirus pandemic. The monastery is also closed to all guests. 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 are continually evaluating the situation and eagerly anticipate the time when we can re-open. As we await this time, let us remember our communion in Christ and keep one another in prayer. Our initial statement from mid-March can be read at this link. The initial statement of the monastic community can be read at this link.
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.
