Design a Custom Retreat
A retreat is a gift to yourself. It is time away from the busyness of everyday life to rest, reflect and reconnect with God. It’s an opportunity to unplug – to experience quiet and stillness.
The Franciscan Spirituality Center offers many types of retreats. Some are over a weekend; others are as long as a week. Retreats can be silent or not, with a group or private. Group retreats may include presentations by the retreat director. Private retreats often include daily meetings with a spiritual director. All of our retreats offer time for prayer, serenity and transformation.
In addition to registering for any of our scheduled retreats, you are welcome to create a custom retreat with one of our trained spiritual directors.
Your custom retreat experience can be as unique as you are, taking into consideration your needs, desires and schedule. You may wish to stay in the Center, which is comfortable, clean and conveniently located near biking trails, the Mississippi River and the historic Mary of the Angels Chapel. Or, if you are seeking a more rustic experience, we have available three cozy and private hermitages located on the edge of woodland in scenic St. Joseph's Ridge, Wisconsin. This option is especially attractive to those who like to spend time in nature and in solitude.
Either way, you will experience Franciscan hospitality and peace for your soul.
Where you decide to stay, for how long, whether meals are needed and how much spiritual direction you would like are all factors in determining the cost of a custom retreat. Your spiritual director will assist you in designing a meaningful retreat experience with exactly the right elements to serve you best and make sure it’s one that fits within your budget.
