Dayspring Retreat Center

Dayspring Retreat Center
Germantown, Maryland
A retreat at Dayspring is an opportunity to be light,
fluid, and to be moved by God’s grace.

Dayspring Retreat Center is an ecumenical silent retreat center, a sacred place set aside for silence, solitude, reflection and prayer. The 210 acres of rolling forests and fields invite you to wander the paths, pause by the streams and ponds, rest on a bench in the shade, or walk the stone labyrinth.

Two buildings welcome all who search for silence: The Lodge, overlooking the meadows, has a lovely sitting room with a fireplace and small library, a kitchen and a dining room; and The Inn, nestled in the forest, has 18 individual rooms with twin bed, chair, table, and sink.

We welcome all who are called to deepen the spiritual life through the practice of silent retreat.

DeCaussade says, “The duty of a saint is to be fully present to each moment.
To be light as a feather, simple as a child, fluid as water, as easily moved as a ball by every movement of God’s grace.”
