The Retreat Center will resume programs starting July 1, 2020
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. When you register for a retreat you will receive a letter outlining the guidelines for a safe retreat. 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.
THE LATEST NEWS
Day of Spirituality
"Missing from the Pews"
"Missing from the Pews; it appears someone you love has left the Church.”
There is an ever-present concern regarding loved ones who no longer attend Mass or can be seen as “fallen away” from their faith.
The Redemptorist Retreat Center is offering a special time of reflection for those who are concerned about friends and loved ones who appear to have stepped away from the Church. The purpose of the day is to examine the impact it has on those who care for them and ways they can relate to each other. Join us for a special time to listen, to share and to pray.
FEBRUARY 5 - 7
Weekend Silent Preached Retreat for Men
"Living in a Time of Plentiful Redemption"
Plentiful redemption is not a concept to be looked for after our life has ended. Plentiful redemption is alive at this very moment. When we come to realize this gift we can more easily face today with a sense of gratitude and joyfulness so we can, in turn, live the Good News.
The silent weekend preached retreat offers time for private prayer and rest, group meditation, Spiritual Conferences, daily Eucharist, an opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, spiritual consultation, Adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament, Devotion to Our Mother of Perpetual Help, Lectio Divina, and enjoying the beautiful grounds.
FEBRUARY 12 - 14
Married Couples Weekend
"Living in a time of Plentiful Redemption
The retreat for married couples has the same basic theme as this year’s series of silent weekend retreats for men and women: “Living in a Time of Plentiful Redemption.” However the retreat for married couples is not silent and the Saturday dynamic includes short afternoon DVD presentations and discussion. We will celebrate daily Mass, have an opportunity for Reconciliation, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, great meals, and ample time for private time with your spouse.
This is not a silent retreat.
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.
