We offer a variety of group retreats year-round, as well as opportunities for individuals to spend their time alone in quiet prayer and solitude.
"Preached" retreats are more interactive and less "preachy" than this customary nomenclature suggests!
Private retreats (time at the Abbey without a schedule of "conferences" or talks) are generally available weekdays.
A day of recollection is like a one-day retreat. "Conferences" or talks follow a theme.
The Conference Center is available for days of recollection and other one-day events for groups of up to fifty-six persons.
The Benedictine Monks of Saint Andrew’s Abbey have been offering a place for retreat, prayer, and inspiration in the High Desert for over 50 years.
First and foremost we would like to thank you for your interest in visiting and supporting us here at the St. Andrew's Abbey Retreat House.
