Schoenstatt Retreat Center

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. 

Since 1969

we have been serving the Archdiocese of Milwaukee as a Retreat Center, providing a God-filled space with a prayerful atmosphere, the beauty of nature in the vicinity of the Schoenstatt Shrine, a chapel dedicated to the Mother of God under the title of Mother Thrice Admirable Queen and Victress of Schoenstatt.

The beauty surrounding the retreat center makes it a restful place for many pilgrims.

Our Staff

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, service, and prayers, turn the retreat center into an extension of the shrine. 

In this manner, the sisters continue to live up to their calling of “being Mary” for the world. 


Our Service

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. 

Our Mission

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!



If you enjoy nature, you will enjoy walking around the land and discovering the trails prepared by the team of the 

 Laudato Si Project.
