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.

The Jesuit Retreat House on Lake Winnebago is following public health directives in determining whether to cancel scheduled retreats. We will determine whether retreats will be on-site THREE WEEKS prior to their starting date and notify retreatants registered for those retreats at that time. Thank you for your patience.

With prayers,

Fr. Chris Manahan, S.J.

    Accept the invitation to act as God acts

    By Fr. Jack Treloar, SJ | For The CompassSeptember 9, 2020 It is always shocking to read or hear the parable of the unjust servant. The lack of gratitude on the servant’s part toward the generosity of the master is appalling. The stern manner he uses toward one of his fellow servants amazes anyone with […]
