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.
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.
