We welcome a large variety of groups and individuals to host their retreats on our grounds throughout the year. Visiting groups and individuals may set their own agenda, bring their own speakers if they wish, and, in general, arrange their day according to their own desires.

There are few places in today’s busy world where you can find beauty, peace, and solitude. As a result, more than ever, time apart from the noise and distractions of the world is needed. We need safe places where we can reflect, discover ourselves again, and reconnect with God. Nazareth Retreat Center offers such a place.
