Retreat Centers

Retreats are times and places set apart in order to reconnect with God and a to reflect on your usual way of being in his presence. We recommend retreats for all believers, but personal retreats can be particularly helpful for spiritual directors. Our Twin Cities facility is available for day-long retreats. However if you are looking for an overnight experience, we have a list of retreat centers in the Twin Cities and Chicago areas for you to consider:
