Guided Retreats, Quiet Days & Workshops at St. John's Convent


All retreats and quiet days at St. John’s Convent take place in the milieu of a contemporary monastic community which has a daily rhythm of prayer. All guests are invited to take part in the daily Eucharist, and those staying overnight may like to join us in the Divine Office (Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, and Compline).

Personal retreats or times for your church or fellowship group

  • The Sisters welcome guests for rest, refreshment, retreat, and participation in the Community's prayer and liturgy. Spend as much time as you like in a private retreat or simply enjoying some peace and quiet, fellowship, and the liturgies of the community. These are self-directed, but individual spiritual direction can also be arranged. Personal sabbatical time can be considered. Also group retreats, quiet days, and workshops scheduled to suit your church or fellowship group. Bring your own leader or ask for a Sister (if one is available) to lead.
