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.

Theme: "The Journey of Faith from Transition to Transformation"
Using Our Holy Father Francis’ latest encyclical, “Fratelli Tutti” as background we look at the attitudes that help us journey more deeply into who God is calling us to be. This is the call to transformation.

Join us for our Annual Guided Contemplative Silent Preached Retreat as we JOURNEY INTO THE SILENCE to emerge with renewed minds and hearts.

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.
