    The Priory specializes in hosting individuals & couples who are seeking a time of solitude, prayer, and spiritual direction. We are also able to host groups who want a place to hold their own retreats and gatherings.

    Upcoming Retreats We Offer


    A Young Adult Guided Weekend Retreat, ages 18-45 • offered monthly

    Friday, 7PM – Sunday  2PM / $225 Individual (scholarships available)

    Dec 1-3 / Feb 8-11 / Mar 2-4 / Apr 13-15

    Is our culture’s definition of success causing you stress? Does the desire to acquire more make you feel less? Do you wonder if others your age are feeling these same pressures and discontentment? This is a weekend retreat for those young adults who are in the midst of the busy fast-paced lifestyle of the world and who seek to UNPLUG. Along with times of spiritual direction, communal meals and prayer, we will learn the monastic tradition of Detachment and the ancient practice of Watchfulness. All will be taught of these ascetical tools with the hope they will go back and live out their retreat experience spiritually equipped and physically RECHARGED. Check in starts at 7 PM.
