Our 2021 online retreats can be conducted at your convenience any time after June 1. In addition to the retreat conferences, participants can pray online with the Benedictine community in pre-recorded sessions or morning, midday and evening prayer.

In person retreats will not be offered in 2021. The following description of a typical in person retreat is provided for information only.

Our  retreats begin on Friday evening. Dinner is at 5:35 p.m., followed by Mass and/or a conference. On each full day of the retreat, Mass is celebrated in the morning and three conferences are held. Retreatants may participate in the Divine Office with the monastic community. The sacrament of Reconciliation is also offered. The celebration of Mass on Sunday, followed by the final conference and lunch, concludes the retreat.

To help make your retreat prayerful, we suggest that you bring a Bible. The retreat office has copies of the New American Bible. The Basilica Gift Shop, located on the first floor of the Parish Center adjoining the Basilica, stocks spiritual books and other religious items.

Rooms are either air-conditioned or equipped with a ceiling fan. Linens and towels are provided. Recreational opportunities include the Saint Vincent Fitness Trail and the Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve.
