Silent Retreats on the shore of Lake Winnebago

Jesuit Retreat House, Oshkosh, Wisconsin, fosters Spiritual enrichment rooted in the Gospels, the Catholic tradition and the spirituality of St. Ignatius of Loyola. Our ministry is dedicated to creating a rich variety of retreat experiences and providing an atmosphere of quiet, peace and prayer in which men and women of all faiths are encouraged to discover and respond generously to God's personal invitation to wholeness and holiness.

The Jesuit Retreat House has two types of silent retreats; preached and directed. Preached retreats include weekend retreats, 12-Step retreats, couples' retreats, a women's Advent retreat, and a men's holy week retreat. Directed retreats take place between May and September.
