In accordance with University, local and national health guidance we are able to welcome individuals and groups. With an abundance of caution, it is strongly recommended that face coverings be worn &/or appropriate social distancing be maintained while at the Creighton University Retreat Center.  With these guidelines there may be occupancy reductions in housing (meaning one per room) and limitations in common spaces.

Masks should be worn into the dining hall, through the serving line, while you collect your plate/dessert/drink and can be removed when you reach your table.  Know we continue with additional cleaning and that sanitation supplies are available on the premises.

Please contact or 712.778.2466 with interest. 

You would be welcome to visit a quiet, prayerful place in which the Spirit of God can touch the heart and move the soul.  We are a full-service retreat center with excellent meeting/conference rooms, private direction rooms, overnight facilities, dining hall and a Chapel; please see schedule for Mass times.  Our comfortable facilities and hospitable environment are set in 154 acres of wooded area along a river teeming with wildlife, songbirds, hiking trails and an awesome night sky.

Consistent with our Jesuit tradition and Ignatian heritage, we offer individual 8-day and 30-day directed, silent retreats based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola.  We also welcome individuals and groups for their own private retreats of any length and offer a variety of additional preached retreats and other programs throughout the year.  Our mission is to support and foster an active prayer life, a deeper conversion and relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ.

As a department of Creighton University, we serve Creighton students, faculty/staff and alumni.  We also welcome all others seeking a place of rest or retreat, including religious, parishes, school groups, organizations and private individuals.

Thank you for visiting this site and may the Lord bless you always.  Please contact us if we may assist with your retreat plans, answer any questions or serve you in any way.
