Mary & Joseph Retreat Center is honored to pay forward the sacred legacy of the Daughters of Mary & Joseph— to be instruments of God’s mercy and compassion by offering a welcoming presence, healing programs and uplifting events. A recent retreatant writes: “Thank you for everything!   I came in scattered and tattered and leave less than 48 hours later restored and grounded.”  We also receive countless compliments on our food, beautiful grounds and newly re-floored guest rooms, so we know that each carefully invested dollar is recognized and appreciated.

Donations to the Retreat Center help to ensure each visitor to our sacred grounds can relax and receive a high-quality, serene and blessed retreat experience.  We strive to keep our fees, which fully support our day-to-day operations, at an affordable level so that all those who yearn to attend can take advantage of the transformative programs we offer.

Our retreat ministry is affirmed yearly by increasing public response to our presence and outreach. In 2019, we served the spiritual needs of more than 15,000 people on their faith journey by sponsoring more than 50 programs of personal and spiritual growth and providing hospitality to more than 200 organizations holding their own religious, educational, staff or personal development retreats.
