Welcome to Retreats at the Benedictine Peace Center

The Benedictine Peace Retreat Center:

  • A peaceful place to rest a while and renew your relationship with God
  • Walk in nature on the bluffs overlooking the Missouri River
  • Reflect on your relationship with God and prayer life
  • Meet with a trained spiritual director who can listen and guide your retreat
  • Join the monastic community for prayer and meals or cherish your solitude

The Benedictine Peace Center seeks to be:

A monastic space where persons can come for solitude, prayer and spiritual refreshment

A resource center for spiritual enrichment programs in a variety of settings at and away from the Center.

Through the Benedictine Peace Center the Sisters of Sacred Heart Monastery share the communal journey of   seeking God with other pilgrims whom we meet on the way.

The Peace Center welcomes men and women of all faiths.
