Shrine Mont offers a number of retreats and programs each year. These are in addition to the hundreds of parish weekends, family reunions, conferences and events held on the mountain.
If you and your family just want to come up for a much needed rest, we are glad to take care of you. You will have full access to our many amenities and we will feed you with our well known comfort food while you are here.
Shrine Mont is very optimistic that we will be able to welcome our parish retreats in the next few months. Maybe your parish isn’t ready to travel together, however, we are here and ready to host your family. Shrine Mont recognizes the need to think differently about retreats during the COVID-19 pandemic. We offer “A Place Apart” for meaningful and much needed re-connection.
