A Retreat is a gift of time persons give themselves, to renew and deepen their covenant with their God. It is time set apart; different from the "ordinary stuff" of daily life, yet a time and experience that can pervade and imbue every day thereafter with new vision and understanding.

 

 

Retreat is a time to "take off your shoes," to be less encumbered by schedule and projects, to be open and vulnerable – ready to be changed and deepened, and time to approach one’s life as "holy ground."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Retreatants are single, married, priests and sisters, young and old; men and women from various faith traditions, who come from across town or across the continent; all intent upon seeking God and letting God seek them. Retreats are available for individuals as well as groups and recommended fees and accommodations vary according to the needs of the retreatants.

Private or Directed Retreats
The Benedictine sisters at Benedictine Spirituality Center in the Pines Retreat Center offer hospitality to all persons seeking this special time with their God. Retreats are either private, or directed by a Sister who meets daily with a retreatant to share in his/her journey. These experiences vary in length from one day to 10 days, depending on the needs of the individual. Spiritual Direction is available upon request. 

You may join the Sisters for prayers and meals during your stay.
