October 2022 – COVID-19 update:
Presently, we have reopened for small or mid-sized day and overnight groups. Some covid precautions remain in place, including private rooms only except in the case of retreatants who ordinarily share a household. We anticipate that in 2023 we will begin to utilize shared rooms for groups who wish a shared room option.
We continue to accept individual private retreats and are also offering online retreats. Additionally, if you wish spiritual direction, this can be arranged via Zoom or in person. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
