Originally an early 1900's manor home, Bellarmine's main retreat house accommodates 66 guests in private rooms, which includes 16 rooms with attached bathrooms. Each room invites a prayerful stillness with simple amenities. Towels and linens are provided for overnight retreatants.
The retreat house offers two chapel spaces. Our Sacred Heart Chapel features classical architectural elements similar to the late Gregorian period. Its Stations of the Cross are one-of-a-kind oil portraits painted by Russian-born artist Alexander Zlatoff-Mirsky. The small chapel was a gift from John C. and Lenore Fogarty. Its modern composition accommodates an intimate congregation of 14 people.
In addition, various lounges provide "homey" spaces for individual prayer and reflection.
A 2,500 square foot Conference Room provides an ideal facility for our Special Groups' retreats. It includes a modest kitchenette and five breakout rooms, such as the Mother Teresa breakout room. It is equipped with up-to-date audio/visual technology and wireless internet.
Also, Bellarmine can accommodate four retreatants in the Cottage. The Cottage includes a cozy kitchenette, fireplace lounge, two bathrooms, and an intimate prayer room.
The grounds feature tranquil gardens, rolling meadows, a walking path, and outdoor Stations of the Cross. A fire pit is available for fellowship on retreat, weather permitting.
