Helpful Information

  We are an independent, non-profit, donor-supported Catholic retreat center. We do not  receive any money from the Archdiocese to run the Center. We rely on the generosity of those who donate their time, talent, and treasure.

   Eucharistic Adoration is available to retreatants 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

   The Center Hours are: Monday through Friday 8am – 8pm, Saturday 8am – 1pm. Closed to the public on Sundays.

   Unless specifically approved ahead of time, all retreats – private and group – need to be out of the rooms by 10am on Sunday. We need at least 24 hours of time for cleaning and arranging spaces in order to receive guests beginning on Monday.

   Your contact information – phone, email, mailing address and copy of your driver’s license – is needed to complete the reservation for a retreat. Full payment upon arrival is required.

   OLHSC is locked each evening at 8pm. Front doors reopen in the morning around 8 am.

   Departure procedures are listed in each room.

   A person requesting a private retreat, either during the week or a retreat on the weekend, must understand that it is possible there will be activity in and around the building, depending on our schedule.

   Guests need to provide their own toiletries.

   OLHSC is a smoke-free building. We do not allow the burning of candles or incense in the rooms.

   We are not able to accommodate pets (including service animals) in the building or overnight. We are not able to accommodate young children for overnight stays.

   OLHSC is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Our buildings are 100 years old with temperamental heating systems. Please understand during the winter months it is very difficult to control the heat in many rooms. We advise our guests to dress in layers to be prepared for the fluctuation in room temperatures.

   Our facility does NOT provide central air conditioning.  All meeting rooms have air conditioning and only a select number of bedroom suites.  All other rooms do not have air conditioning. Each room is equipped with a ceiling fan and additional fans are available upon request.

   Please note: Wi-Fi access is very limited at the Retreat Center. Meeting rooms have Wi-Fi but sleeping rooms generally do not receive a signal. Access passwords in the meeting rooms are available from the weekend coordinator or Retreat Coordinator.
