As we begin this solemn season of preparation for the coming of Emmanuel, we join with the desires of Advent holy figures: Zechariah, Elizabeth, the Magi, and the Blessed Virgin Mary. These Spiritual Exercises, under the inspiration of Ignatius Loyola, will prepare our souls for the advent of Jesus into our daily lives.


This retreat includes several presentations, daily mass, 6 meals, the opportunity for one-on-one spiritual direction with a trained spiritual director, and many other opportunities to explore our 80 acres and almost 60k square feet of  interior space. All activities are optional, but we do ask everyone to respect the quiet of the retreat house for everyone to have the opportunity to read, sleep and reflect in the quiet. 

Bellarmine has two libraries, a resource center, two chapels, and many other common areas. Outdoor spaces include a various walking trails, various prayer gardens, a gazebo, stations of the cross, as well as a few patios and outdoor chairs and benches. Each retreatant has their own bedroom.
