Who am I before God? How am I called to give my life away? This retreat for young adults based on the Spiritual Exercises will provide space for a personal encounter with Christ and a chance to prayerfully reflect on what it means to be ourselves and to follow him. 


Check-in begins at 9am on Saturday morning. The retreat starts at 10 am and will end on Sunday by 1 PM after lunch.

This retreat includes daily Mass, 5 hot 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, two chapels, a resource center, 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.
