The four hermitages provided by The Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes are intended for those who seek the God within and who are pursuing comfort in the stillness, solitude, and quiet that can be found amidst nature.
The hermitages are available for scheduling retreats January – December. Reservations are busiest from March through December, with more availability in the months of January and February.
The hermitages are closed for the Christmas Holiday Season from December 23 – January 2 annually.
The online calendar shows when a hermitage is occupied. The first and last initials of the retreatant are displayed in the color associated with the reserved hermitage.
When selecting dates, please note that the hermitages are cleaned after each retreatant. If a retreat is less than seven days, allow one day for cleaning. If the retreat is seven days or more, allow two days for cleaning.
