Dear Friends, as you know, our scheduled programs have been impacted by the COVID-19 restrictions.  However, this is a changing situation that we will continue to evaluate and provide updates.

We are striving to provide quality options for you during this period. Consider taking time for a private, no-contact personal retreat for yourself. We have two beautiful options, Emmaus and Nazareth, for your to explore.

There is also an online series of Reflections on the Sacred Heart of Jesus presented by Sr. Sara Butler, MSBT, Professor Emerita, University of St. Mary on the Lake. By clicking on the link above you will have access to all sessions that are published to date.

We also invite you to join us in praying the Novena to the Holy Spirit during this time of pandemic. Our community has been praying the Novena for over one hundred years!

We pray that you and your loved ones will be safe and well. Please contact us with your prayer requests, as we are praying daily for all who are struggling in these times.

Located in Holy Trinity, Alabama, just across the river from Columbus, Georgia, Blessed Trinity Shrine Retreat Center is on holy ground for the Missionary Cenacle Family. It was here, in Holy Trinity, that the Catholic Lay Missionary Volunteers, Sisters, Priests, and Brothers made their first home. It is here that the shrine we know as Father Judge's Chapel stands as
a witness to our birth. Since 1917 we have continued to maintain and develop our mission at this sacred place.

We welcome groups and individuals of all faiths. In addition to our own retreat programs, we are happy to host groups who provide their own programs.

“Come apart, and rest awhile,” Jesus told his disciples. We invite all who hear this invitation to join us at Blessed Trinity Shrine Retreat, whether for a planned program to nourish spiritual growth or for time alone in a quiet, prayerful atmosphere to listen more deeply within.
