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.  Those that have been fully vaccinated do not need to wear a mask and do not need to social distance.  Those that have not been fully vaccinated should wear a mask and practice social distancing.   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.

Our Mother Of Perpetual Help Silent Weekend Preached Retreat

for Men and Women

Our Mother of Perpetual Help;​

Window to the Gospel


Join us for a retreat with Our Mother of Perpetual Help!  The Icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help can be seen as a Window to the Gospel. 

The Icon offers us an opportunity to enter the Gospel through our eyes as well as our words.  Messages of the Gospel can be seen through the various images, symbols and even the coloring within the Icon.  The Redemptorists have been promoting Our Mother of Perpetual Help for over 150 years. 

Devotion to Our Mother of Perpetual Help fits very well with the message Redemptorists are called to preach to the world – “With Him there is plentiful Redemption for all.”  Jesus has given us his Mother to guide us along the way.

Consider setting aside time to be with us for this special retreat.  Our Mother of Perpetual Help is timeless in the message she offers.  The weekend will be presented by the retreat team here at the Redemptorist Retreat Center.

Presenters:  The Retreat Ream

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.


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.


Your donations help us offer rest and reflection to a wounded world.
