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. Our buildings provide a small library of books, videos and sound recordings. The Abbey Gift Shop carries a selection as well. All visitors are welcome to join us in praying the Liturgy of the Hours, as well as in the celebration of the Eucharist. Part of our grounds 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.
