In 1917, in a cabin on our grounds, Father Thomas Augustine Judge, C.M. offered the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for the first time for a small group of lay volunteers who had answered his plea for help for the Church in the Southland.

“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.

Our retreat center, located in Alabama just across the river from Columbus, GA, is situated on holy ground for the Missionary Cenacle Family.  It was here in Holy Trinity, AL that the religious branches of Catholic 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. The Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity Motherhouse burned down in 1930, forcing the Sisters to relocate to Philadelphia, but we continue to  maintain and develop our mission at this sacred place. Blessed Trinity Shrine Retreat was built here in 1965.

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