Welcome to Retreats at the Benedictine Peace Center

Due to safety precautions for COVID-19, Sacred Heart Monastery is not receiving guests until further notice.  We will let you know on this page when we are again open for personal retreats and events.  Know of our prayers for victims, their families, and care givers.


To offer spiritual support to one another, we have developed several online offerings for prayer and discussion with details on a new page, “Interactive Online Programs“.  Another new webpage, “Reflections During the COVID 19 Crisis,” offers meditations and prayers to remind us that God is with us in this challenging time.  We also are offering inspiration on our Facebook page.


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.
