We welcome men and women interested in deepening their spiritual lives. In the ancient monastic tradition of hospitality, we invite you to join us in seeking God in prayer, silence, and solitude.
We open our Ascension Guesthouse on Tuesday morning each week and close it after Mass on Sunday. Guests may make a retreat ranging in length from a few hours to five nights. There are three individual guest rooms, and shared facilities (shared bath, shared kitchen, and common rooms) available to retreatants, as well as a 2nd floor balcony that looks over the Monastery church.
Our Guesthouse is currently open for retreat. Because of distancing guidelines, retreatants now take all of their meals in the Guesthouse, which has a full kitchen equipped with a small refrigerator, stove, and microwave. They are also welcome to dine at or take out from nearby restaurants. Simple breakfast fare is available as usual.
We do not presently provide spiritual direction for retreatants.
The recommended retreat donation is $40 per night. We invite all to contribute as their means permit.
For more information, or to make a reservation, please contact our Guestmaster Father Timothy at (773) 927-7424 ext. 202, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation
The priests of the Monastery offer the Sacrament of Reconciliation by appointment. Guests should make these arrangements with the Guestmaster prior to their arrival.
