Individually Directed Retreats at the Benedictine Peace Center


Are you hearing the call to a personal retreat?


“Come away, and rest for a while.”


Benedictine Peace Center - retreats


Jesus invites us to pause for Sabbath time to renew our energies and refresh our spirits.

The Benedictine Peace Center is designed for silent personal retreats in monastic space, where you can be alone or join the Benedictine Sisters at prayer and meals.

You can also walk in nature, relax with a book, enjoy solitude and, if desired, meet daily with a spiritual director.

Your personal retreat can be any length; Contact us to reserve the number of days your schedule permits.

Your stay at the Benedictine Peace Center includes a private room with bath, meals & snacks.

Arrangements can be made to meet with a trained spiritual director to guide your retreat time.

I have found the Peace Center to be an anointed place to rest from the often overwhelming pace of the every-day world.  The gardens and grounds are marvelous in their inviting beauty.  The many well-kept walking paths and benches offer ample opportunities to “be” in the peace of nature.  And the accommodations are exceptionally thoughtful for each guest.

But above these things are the Sisters themselves who offer a genuine welcome to anyone in need of retreat.  They warmly invited me into their space, but also gave me the freedom to choose how I would spend my time.  These gracious hostesses have gently reminded me of the deep impact of slowing down.  I intend to make more trips back to the Peace Center and would highly encourage others to do so as well!
