IN TIMES OF CHAOS, UNCERTAINTY AND UNREST,
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
Advent Day of Prayer
Advent is a time of joyful anticipation for the birth of Christ. We recall the wonderful gift of a child who will be known as the Prince of Peace. This day allows us to reflect on our preparation to receive, once again, that gift of Jesus into the depths of our heart. This is not a silent retreat. There will be time for reconciliation and time for silent reflection. The morning ends with lunch. The afternoon offers the possibility for a brief word with a member of the retreat team followed by celebrating the mother of Jesus under the title of Our Mother of Perpetual Help. Our time together closes with the celebration of the Eucharist.
FEBRUARY 12 - 14

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.
