EASTERN POINT RETREAT HOUSE

Recharge your soul by the sea.

Spiritual retreats are not just for priests and religious. In fact, the United States Council of Catholic Bishops urges lay people to take advantage of opportunities to go on a retreat: “In the midst of your busy lives, a retreat opportunity affords you time of silence and clarity that cannot be found in the world.”

These Catholic retreat centers by the ocean offer all that, and more – each is a beautiful setting that will inspire you and put you in the perfect frame of mind for a fruitful spiritual repose.
