Retreat Details

Day retreat schedules vary.

Retreats are silent as to foster your recollection and prayer.

The abbey does not provide meals as part of the retreat.

Over-night accommodations are not provided.

You are welcome to come earlier or stay later than the scheduled retreat events.

Regularly scheduled prayers take place with the abbey community in the abbey church.  That schedule can be found here.

During some retreats there may be photography, filming, audio recording or other means of capturing your image or voice for media or other printed materials (including social media and websites). Please contact us if you have any concerns.
