Welcome to our Schoenstatt Retreat Center
Located between Waukesha and Delafield, WI, our Retreat Center is a place where the Christian soul finds beauty, rest, peace, strength, and a family atmosphere.
Our Staff, Our Service, our Mission
The joyful dedication and vigorous commitment of the Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary to their mission of spiritual formation of the laity, families, youth and so on, fills the Retreat Center with the love of God.
Their presence in the office, in the kitchen, and other areas, their smiles and sincere kindness makes of every visit a moment of being at home. They turn the retreat center into an extension of the shrine.
In connection with the Schoenstatt Shrine, our Retreat Center is a spiritual home for the national and international Schoenstatt family.
Hand in hand with volunteers and the leaders of the Schoenstatt Movement, we offer Schoenstatt retreats to people of all walks of life.
We also serve as a retreat center for schools, parishes, and other organizations of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.
Father Joseph Kentenich (1885-1968), the founder of Schoenstatt, envisioned our Retreat Center on this land as part of an international center.
People from all over the world come here to receive formation, increase their knowledge of Schoenstatt history and its spirituality as well as to come in contact with the places blessed by the presence of the founder of Schoenstatt, Father Joseph Kentenich.
Schoenstatt means beautiful place. It is the name of the place where the Schoenstatt Movement was founded in Germany, on October 18, 1914, in a small chapel which has been replicated around the world since the time of World War II. One of these chapels rests on our land.
You may visit it anytime!
