What is a Retreat?

A retreat offers a time and a place to get away from the noise of our daily lives and busy world to find God who offers us inner peace and renewed commitment. It is a welcome stop on our faith journey where we can find refreshment for body‚ soul, and spirit. It is an opportunity to refocus ourselves within God's loving embrace‚ either alone or with others.

During a retreat, you may wish to meet with a spiritual director or have time and space to be on your own. Arrangements can be made ahead of your stay to match an appropriate guide for your personal needs. Spiritual directors are accustomed to answering questions and meeting first-time retreatants and can suggest the right fit and best retreat for you. St. Raphaela Center is a Catholic retreat house with a spiritual tradition rooted in Ignatian Spirituality. We welcome people of all religious persuasions in a spirit of ecumenism and interreligious dialogue.
