WELCOME TO THE RETREAT HOUSE

Situated amongst the rolling hills of eastern Nebraska, we offer the ideal atmosphere for a peaceful and fruitful time of recollection and deep prayer. Just as Jesus instructs His disciples to escape the noise of the world and “come away to a deserted place and rest awhile,” so, too, does He invite you to retreat in a calming silence to better know and love Him.

We offer a wide variety of retreats that will allow you to return to your daily life refreshed and spiritually strengthened. See below to find the best option for you!
