Monastery Retreats
“Half an hour’s meditation is essential, except when you are very busy. Then a full hour is needed.”
-St. Francis de Sales

Women are welcome for a day or weekend of recollection and retreat with the opportunity to pray the Liturgy of the Hours with the Sisters and to join us for meals.

Married or single lay women and women religious have found the silence and prayerful atmosphere of the monastery very conducive to their inner growth and worship of the Lord.
