Holy Cross Abbey


“Let all guests who arrive be received like Christ, for He is going to say, ‘I came as a guest, and you received Me’”

(Matthew 25:35) Saint Benedict’s Rule for Monasteries, Chapter 53


Rooms in our Retreat House are available by reservation to men and women who wish to spend several days with us in quietness and prayer. There are no conferences, nor is there a rigid schedule to follow. Weekday retreats begin on Monday at 3 pm and end on Friday by 9:30 am. Weekend retreats are from Friday at 3 pm through Sunday at 3 pm. Reservations may be made by letter, telephone or email.

Fifteen retreatants are here during the week, and another fifteen for the weekend. The Cistercian (Trappist) monks of Holy Cross Abbey welcome and honor you, and invite you to share for a time the rhythms and stillness of our life.

Our retreats are non-directed, individual and monastic in nature.
