Silent Retreats on the shore of Lake Winnebago

The Jesuit Retreat House - located six miles south of Oshkosh on twenty-three beautiful acres along the shore of the largest inland lake in the Midwest - draws on the rich tradition of Ignatian spirituality and reflection.

The retreat house offers resources to all who want to discern God's presence in their lives. At the same time, they also aim to help their retreatants to become "contemplatives in action," people who bring this spirituality into the everyday world.

This silent retreat ministry hopes to help women and men of all backgrounds to more fully grow in their personal relationships with Jesus Christ. The Jesuits see themselves as companions of Jesus, and they invite others to join with them, as friends in the Lord to build up the body of Christ here on earth.


*** JRH currently requires all retreatants to wear masks when in public indoor settings. ***

The Jesuit Retreat House on Lake Winnebago is following public health recommendations. Currently, we are still asking for attendance confirmation prior to each retreat. (A request for confirmation is emailed three weeks prior to each retreat.) Having large and increasing numbers of fully vaccinated retreatants greatly helps our ministry by providing a safe and healthy environment for everyone. Thank you for your patience during this time.

With prayers,

Fr. Mark Carr, S.J.
