"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God - what is good and acceptable and perfect."
Romans 12:2



Retreat centres in our diocese offer respite from a busy, scheduled world. Time at our retreat centres, whether programmed or self-directed, shifts the focus from external to internal, inviting the body to relax, the mind to rest and the heart to be heard.

We invite you to contact our retreat centres to:

  • Learn of upcoming programs
  • Explore options for individual retreats
  • Develop or book a retreat for your group

Spiritual rest or enlightenment, meaningful discussions, or simple peace and quiet: our retreat centres can support your journey in these ways and more.
