Welcome to the Redemptorist Retreat Center
God offers you the gift
of plentiful redemption.
To make your stay more pleasant, safe, and worry-free we have made some changes here at the Retreat Center in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Center for Disease Control guidelines for dealing with such. We suggest that you wear a mask in common areas. We want you to know that your safety as well as the safety of our other guests and our staff members is foremost in our mind.
We look forward to having you at the
Retreat Center in the near future.

EXPLORE OUR RETREAT CENTER
The Redemptorist Retreat Center was established as a place for you to rest, reflect and renew. From the peaceful lake to the lush woods, our surroundings invite you to step back from your daily life and spend time in prayer with the Lord. Explore our history, mission and retreat offerings and find your place here.
In 1927, Lindbergh had flown over the Atlantic and Admiral Byrd had flown over the North Pole. There were transatlantic telephone calls and even movies that talked. All this “progress” had a way of distracting people away from God and so it was with the idea of bringing men and women back to God that the Redemptorists began the retreat movement in Oconomowoc.
HOST YOUR OWN GROUP
We welcome you to visit our retreat center any time. Interested in bringing a group to spend a weekend with us, but not finding the program you need? Consider hosting your own. These are retreats sponsored by the Center but facilitated by outside individuals. These conferences typically last over three or four days.
Often, there is no greater gift than time for personal prayer and reflection; a little quiet, a little space and a little time. We offer individual apartment-style spaces for personal retreats, sponsored by the Center but facilitated by outside individuals, typically lasting over three or four days. We are flexible in order to give you what you need.
