  Guest /Retreat House
                     Whitesville, KY

      Monasteries are usually founded in places of great natural beauty. No wonder people looking for something missing in their lives have instinctively been drawn to make a Retreat at monasteries where they can get back in touch with their deepest selves and their God-given destiny.

     Our Retreat House and Chapel, located on a peaceful 170-acre site of beautiful woodlands, gives women and men of Catholic and other Christian denominations the opportunity to enter into a deeper relationship with God by sharing in our Passionist liturgical celebrations, while renewing and strengthening themselves spiritually and physically in a place of deep silence, solitude and prayer.

Retreat Guests are welcome and encouraged to assist with the Nuns at the Eucharist and all Liturgical Hours of Prayer.
