REST. REFLECT. RENEW.
Welcome to the Redemptorist Retreat Center! Since 1961, the Redemptorists have seen our beautiful property, located on the shores of Crooked Lake, as a place of REST for those who need a spiritual break from the complexities of everyday life; a place to REFLECT on the goodness, love, and mercy of our God; and somewhere to RENEW their understanding that in the Lord there is the beautiful gift of plentiful redemption offered because of Jesus and shown so beautifully through his mother, Our Mother of Perpetual Help. Whether one comes here to quietly walk along the lakeshore or stay in one of our hermitages, to participate in a group of fellow seekers, or to silently spend the weekend in prayer, we are here as an oasis in the midst of life to help one return with new energy and new

The Mission of the Redemptorist Retreat Center, Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, is to provide a place of renewal, rest and contemplative reflection. The Center is open to all people seeking spiritual growth and maturity.
The Redemptorists of the Denver Province, through their commitment to the values and charism of their founder, St. Alphonsus Liguori, continue to maintain the retreat center so that the redemptive love of Jesus Christ may be abundantly proclaimed.

How did the Redemptorists found this beautiful place on Crooked Lake?
The year was 1927, but in so many ways, the times were similar to our experience today. "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.
