Welcome to the Peace Center

Silent Personal Retreats. Spiritual Direction. Spiritual Enrichment Programs.

Online or In-person

We are currently accepting fully-vaccinated residential retreatants at the Benedictine Peace Center. You are welcome to contact us for reservations.

The Benedictine Peace Retreat Center is a peaceful place to rest a while and renew your relationship with God. Walk in nature on the bluffs overlooking the Missouri River, 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 and create your own spiritual experience. 

We are:

  •  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.

For More Information download the Benedictine Peace Center brochure.
