Retreats and Days of Reflection

Custom Retreats

The institute for Pastoral Leadership of the University of Saint Mary of the Lake, will work with individuals, private groups, parishes and others to organize, plan, as well as provide retreats.  We will work with your team to provide a retreat experience that meets your needs, whether that is a day, overnight, weekend or more.  Our facilities allow us to offer private bedrooms, comfortable meeting rooms set up to your groups needs and acres of outdoor wooded space with places for quiet reflection or prayer.  The campus of the University provides for all those essential elements for retreat.  Guests stay in our Conference Center facilities on the south end of the University campus.  There are 3.5 miles of road that take you around St. Mary Lake which is forested and populated with beautiful wildlife.

CONTACT: Catherine Sims at 847-837-4552,  to have a conversation about ways we can help you achieve the spiritual goals for your group.  You can also email me at csims@usml.edu.  Quotes for custom retreats provided after consultation.
