Retreat Center

Spend time on retreat relaxing and reflecting with Christ. Our personal individually directed retreats cater to your spiritual needs through one-on-one daily meetings with a spiritual director.  Enjoy Mass in our historical wooden church and pray daily in our adoration chapel. You are encouraged to end your stay in our Full of Grace Café by serving the poor of our community with our local volunteers. The retreat rooms are within the campus of our parish, yet private to ensure space for interior solitude.

Testimonials:

"God’s grace led me to this retreat, “To be away with God is an adventure, ... a journey” into the sacred, and it certainly was! The silence and solitude offered on this retreat makes you feel His Presence and draws you to a place where you know His Most Sacred Heart is your home.  Spending much quiet, private time in the beautiful Adoration Chapel, revealed God’s love and the movements of the Holy Spirit in this holy place.  The one-on-one Spiritual Direction is an invaluable time daily to provide prayer, guidance, awareness of, and readiness to, recognize His Divine Presence in our midst. The Spiritual Director journeyed with me on this path to holiness. Mass and confession, spending unlimited time in His Word, made it so easy to follow Jesus, to seek Him with burning desire ignited in my heart on these holy grounds. I am so thankful for the many blessings, graces, flawless love, and most of all, joy from my time spent here; a source of peace like no other." -Charlene S.

“I registered to attend a silent women’s retreat, not really knowing to expect and I encountered more than anything I could ever imagine.  The community of the Our Lady of the Holy Rosary parish was inviting, welcoming and spirit-filled!  The atmosphere was so peaceful, beautifully kept, and very inviting.  Everything displayed within the parish has such power inspired by the Holy Spirit.  The spiritual direction was led by such nurturing and encouraging directors in one on one conversations which prompted such an invitation to allow the presence of the Lord to be encountered.  The graces poured out and placed a profound impact that has penetrated my heart and nurtured my soul! I describe this community to my family and friends as ‘an appetizer to what eternity may be.’  Attend with an openness to come inside this parish to rest, feel welcomed and fully retreat from the outside world.  May you find the peace of Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit!  Come to the feast!”  -Dinora M.
