About us

Our conference rooms are available to 501(c)(3) non-profit groups such as government, school, and church groups. We are available for daytime group use Monday through Saturday.

Our monastic grounds are quiet, peaceful and green with trees and other plants. Since January 2007, our monastic grounds have been smoke-free; you’ll enjoy breathing our fresh air.

We compost food and brown paper, and recycle as much as we can. We invite you to help us keep the landfill free of everything that can be recycled or composted.

Several meeting rooms are available. One or more is sure to fit your needs.

We have a large Multipurpose Room with chairs and six-foot tables. The room can be divided into two rooms, each very comfortable for 20-45 people with tables. The full room can accommodate up to 150 seated lecture style. The room is carpeted and has windows looking out on the wooded grounds.

The Multipurpose Room is equipped with internet access, both hardwired and wireless.

Across a short walkway,The Spirituality Center offers the use of two rooms. The Sophia Room is a comfortable room for up to 20 people and the Guadalupe Room holds 6-8 in a more casual atmosphere. The Sophia Room may have access to a kitchen.

Both buildings have ramps and are wheelchair accessible. You may have an outside caterer provide meals or coffee service. Ask us about referrals.

My stay at the Spirituality Center was grounding, peaceful, and rejuvenating. The agreement to unplug from technology and dive into a monastic lifestyle led me to be present. The nature trails are divine from the lush trees to the quiet calls of the birds. Sharing a meal with the community was welcoming and nurturing. I greatly enjoyed my time.

Venue Highlights

The Priory Spirituality Center is an ecumenical Christian ministry that encourages people of all faiths to seek and discern the voice of God in their lives and in the world. We are a ministry of St. Placid Priory that reflects the Benedictine values of peace, hospitality, community, learning and prayerful discernment.

We offer a peaceful and contemplative setting for personal reflection. We encourage and challenge people to know the presence of God in their lives through classes, workshops, retreats and individual spiritual direction. Other offerings include a women’s book group and formation programs.

Breakfasts are on your own in our Center Kitchen Monday through Saturday. We provide traditional breakfast items such as eggs, milk, bread, cereals, and fruit. You are welcome to bring supplemental food. On Sundays the Priory provides a delicious brunch usually consisting of eggs, hash browns, bacon, sausage, toast, pancakes, fruits, and pastries.

Lunch and dinner are provided at the Priory. These meals consist of one or two main dishes and a salad bar. There are often dairy, gluten and soy-free options. If you need to bring supplemental foods or meals, you may keep them in our Center kitchen, cook them there, and eat there or bring it to community meals.

A silent dining area is also available if you prefer to spend your meals in silence.

Coffee and tea is also available around the clock.

Accommodations

We have ten retreat bedrooms, most of which are equipped with two twin beds. The rooms may be shared if you are coming with a friend or partner, but generally there is just one person per room. Our building is set back among the trees so the rooms stay fairly cool. There is a heater in each room for the colder nights. Each room has a sink, mirror, chair, desk, and small closet area. Towels and linens are provided, but please bring your own toiletries. Bathrooms are shared and showers are available.

Retreatants are welcome to join the Sisters for Mass, Praise, and meals. There is wi-fi available in the Priory Library from 8:30am-8:00pm everyday. The Priory Store is also open on Fridays and Saturdays. Plenty of walking trails wind around the Priory's property and are open to retreatants.

Spiritual Direction is available upon request at an additional charge.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Watching the sun come over the mountain in the morning inspires me! Holly
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
