Private Retreats

A Personal Private Retreat Experience
The Monastery of the Holy Spirit offers individuals the opportunity to get away from their hectic daily lives for a time of prayer, contemplation and relaxation. Here's a wonderful way you can combine personal quiet time and spiritual inspiration. Come almost any day of the year and stay up to a week. You are free to follow your own schedule as well as to participate fully in the monastic schedule of the Divine office: praying the psalms.

Come aside and rest a while
The day also offers an opportunity to share in the Eucharist, and invites you to spend your day, including meals, in prayerful silence, to simply be with God in love. In an atmosphere of silence, you will have solitary time for prayer, journaling, discernment, quiet meditating in nature, by our lakes, on our lawns, and on our peaceful walking trails, or for just enjoying the silence and solitude of this contemplative oasis of our monastery grounds. A flexible schedule allows you to have a completely customized experience.

Invitation to Renewal
The Monastery of the Holy Spirit invites you to come and experience a retreat for a day or a few days of restful recollection and spiritual renewal in a prayerful and peaceful environment. Reservations may be made for one night or several nights (depending on available space) by calling the Retreat House. Guest Service staff is on hand to help you throughout the day. The Retreat House staff is flexible and every effort is made to accommodate guest's requests. We look forward to working with you to schedule a date for your private retreat.

The joyful Sacrament of Reconciliation is available to help you sort out your private life and receive the Lord's healing forgiveness.

Private "Group" Retreats can be arranged by calling the the Retreat House staff at (770) 760-0959.
