We are happy to make our Guest House available for individuals and groups who would like to spend some time in quiet reflection and prayer. Although we offer a few “themed” retreats throughout the year, the majority of individuals and groups come to the monastery to make a personal retreat.

Personal Retreats

The Guest House is always open to individuals and groups that are interested in making a personal retreat. These must be scheduled with the Guest Master well in advance.

If you have never made a retreat at New Melleray (or even if you have), you may find this little introduction of value.

Theme Retreats

Throughout the year, the monastery offers various retreats that focus on a particular topic or theme, or are intended for a particular group of people. The following is a list of these retreats for the coming year. Click on the title of any of the retreats to learn more about it and to find a Registration Form if you are interested in attending.

Confession is available on Saturday afternoons beginning at 2:00 p.m.

For questions or comments about our retreats, please contact the Retreat Director
