Here are some kind words from our retreatants:

September Kairos group

September Kairos Group

“My life is very full, very complicated and, at times, very stressful. Taking the time to go on retreat is a gift to myself, to my family and to the people with whom I work. It is a gift because I intentionally take the time to step back, enter the quiet and, through prayer and contemplation, consider the bigger question. Retreats help improve my relationship with God and with others, and through these enhanced relationships I can be of better service each and every day.”
- Brian Murphy

“Bellarmine! The word brings a smile to my face. I can see the beautiful landscape, and I feel an inner peace. For three carefree days of silent reflection with Our Lord, while in the midst of my sister retreatants, I know I will be pampered and well fed, but most of all, so loved. That’s Bellarmine for me.”
– Melinda Henson

“I look forward to my annual retreat at Bellarmine as much as any weekend of the year. The retreat master and staff along with the beautiful grounds and buildings all work together to create an ideal atmosphere for truly thoughtful reflection and self-examination in the context of my Christian beliefs. It is a respite from the daily demands of work and family life that allows me to refocus my attention and energy towards the things that are most important to me. It has been and continues to be a very positive influence in my life.”
– Jim McMahon
