Welcome to All

Notre Dame Retreat House is a holy place where people come to reflect on life and their relationship with God. ALL are welcome to spend some time away with the LORD who speaks to our hearts and instructs us in his ways. Whether frequent visitors, or new to our House, whether youths, young adults, or regular folk, all will feel welcomed by our staff. Through the discipline of retreats, numerous people have been revitalized, and returned to parish and family life with greater enthusiasm and purpose.

We also welcome the use of our accommodations by other religious communities, educational institutions, hospitals, community/medical support groups and various organizations. We feel that our facilities can make your meetings and conferences more productive and consequential. We are ready to assist you in your efforts.

The Retreat House is run by the Redemptorist Congregation, primarily as a ministry, to offer retreat experiences for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Rochester. We have served the Finger Lakes Region for over eighty years, and since 1967 here in Canandaigua.
