As of this moment, we at the Dominican Retreat and Conference Center are canceling our programs between now and  July 12, 2020, at which point we will re-evaluate if we can open, and when we may be able to reschedule some of the canceled programs. Please check back for updates.

If you have made any deposits, please let us know if you would like to transfer that money to another program at a later date, if you need the money refunded, or if you would consider donating it to the ministry here.

We realize that these are difficult times and that some of you may feel isolated by the restrictions that are necessary for the health and well being of all.  If you would find it helpful to have someone to talk to, please feel free to call us here at the Retreat House.  If there is no answer, please leave your name and phone number and one of us would be happy to connect with you.
