St. Benedict’s Abbey and Retreat Center is located on the state line of Wisconsin and Illinois, midway between Chicago and Milwaukee. It is easily accessible, just 10 minutes west of Interstate 94. Yet it is still uniquely remote, surrounded by approximately 450 acres of woodland and rolling hills on the south shore of serene Benet Lake in southeastern Wisconsin.

Our goal as a retreat center is to offer guests a place to rest, pray, contemplate, and revitalize visitors’ relationships with God. This spiritual renewal should help one deepen awareness of God’s presence and action in his or her life.
