Make a Retreat at our Abbey

The Abbey Retreat House is a ministry of the Benedictine nuns of the Abbey of St. Walburga. Our aim is to provide a quiet place where individuals or groups may spend time in prayer and reflection for one or more days.

For individuals, we offer non-structured, undirected retreats, when space is available.  Weekends are busy, as is the entire summer season, but we are happy to fit individuals when possible.

 All visitors are welcome to join us in praying the Liturgy of the Hours, as well as in the celebration of the Eucharist.  (Please note that only Catholics are allowed to receive Holy Communion; others are welcome to come forward for a blessing from the priest.)

Part of our grounds, including an outdoor Way of the Cross, is open to retreatants wishing to experience God in the beauty of creation. The terrain is rugged and wildlife is abundant; suitable outdoor clothing and sturdy shoes are necessary.
