Retreat Policies
Retreats usually are scheduled for:
• Weekend: Friday after 2 PM through Sunday 1 PM
• Midweek: Monday after 2 PM through Thursday 1 PM

We ask everyone to check-in between 2:00-4:00 PM when coming on retreat; this allows you time to settle in and unwind.  The retreat begins with Vespers at 5:20 PM.
In light of frequent late cancellations and no-shows, retreat reservations require a non-refundable $30.00 deposit at booking. The balance of your lodging and meals is due upon arrival.  You are most welcome to make an additional donation at the end of your retreat.

We ask for a donation of $90 to $110 per person per night for your time with us; however, an even more generous gift helps us welcome retreatants with limited resources. For groups, we are asking $90 per person, (per night) as well as having the group pay either by one check or one credit card. For groups, this needs to be paid in advance. We accept the following credit cards (Discover, Master Card & Visa), as well as, personal checks or cash. After you have confirmed your reservation, you may give your deposit by credit card to the Registrar. Reservations should be arranged well in advance.

Please call  (770) 760-0959

Guest rooms will be available for check-in after 2:00 PM. Check-out for all guest rooms is 9:00 AM. Special scheduling can be arranged.
