Holy Thursday, April 6 to Easter Sunday, April 9, 2023
Come, enter the silence, and experience the rich liturgies of this Triduum Retreat with the monastic community at Sacred Heart Monastery in Yankton, South Dakota. These sacred three days are the holiest days of the Church year when we celebrate the events embracing the central mystery of the Incarnation. The Benedictine Sisters invite you to join them in this extended time of quiet, prayerful silence, and the rich liturgical celebration of the PASSION, DEATH, and RESURRECTION of CHRIST. This Holy Week retreat begins at 4:00 p.m. on April 9, Holy Thursday, and ends with a festive noon dinner on Easter Sunday.
The Benedictine Peace Center staff will welcome you to this time of silence.
We are currently accepting fully vaccinated and boosted residential retreatants at the Benedictine Peace Center. Should there be an increase in COVID rates in our area, please know that we may need to add restrictions and protocols.

As we prepare to renew our baptismal vows at Easter, we recall the Scriptural symbolism of water. Moses’ parting of the waters at the Red Sea and the Israelites’ safe passage epitomizes the centrality of water in God’s saving acts.
The waters of Baptism are life-giving waters. Renew your bond with the living Christ. Be refreshed; come to the water.
This retreat will take place on Zoom and will include times of prayer and short presentations, followed by personal reflection. Dialogue in breakout groups is an integral part of this experience. The Lenten Cycle A Sunday Scriptures will be our guide as we join the Samaritan woman and “Come to the Water.”

The Advent season is a restorative time. It is a season for discovering fresh hope in the liturgical texts and in the consoling reassurance God has already made good on the promise of redemption.
Save the date for our 2023 retreat!
