Missouri Sanctuaries, Retreats, and Sacred Places

Updated on July 11, 2010

Renew Yourself

Do you need a break from the demands and pressures of daily life? Spending a weekend, a few days, or even just an hour away from the world may be exactly what you need to renew your spirit. Going on spiritual journeys and retreats is not new-people have been going on pilgrimages and journeying to sacred shrines for centuries.

This lens is for the purpose of listing and finding retreat centers in the State of Missouri

Conception Abbey - One Of My Favorite Places

The Basilica of the Immaculate Conception is the heartbeat of Conception Abbey. Here, the monks gather six times a day to praise God through the Divine Office and the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. This schedule of prayer punctuates a monk's day, keeping them mindful of the Heavenly Kingdom so that "in all things, God may be glorified."

      I went away to a weekend retreat many years ago with my first wife. In the southeast of England there is a brewery called Greene King, who produce a beer called Abbot Ale. I found it highly amusing to find one of the monks wearing one of their t-shirts, with the slogan "I've Swallowed An Abbot".
