Nazareth, Kentucky: Nazareth Retreat House

About the Nazareth Retreat House:

A Ministry of The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, the Nazareth Retreat House offers many retreats in a prayerful, beautiful setting.  Their hermitages are a place where one can just be free from a busy schedule and the hustle and bustle of the world to pray, reflect, and recuperate.  Retreats are offered throughout the year.

Two hermitages are available. Both are in a wooded part of the campus. Vincent Cottage is a two bedroom hermitage with a living/dining area, kitchen, and screened-in porch. It overlooks a small lake called “Peter’s Puddle”.  Casa Maria is single occupancy with a single bed, living/eating area, and kitchen.  In addition, there are other accommodations available, so check out their website.

It is surrounded by trees and is home to a variety of birds and flowers.  Scenic and well-maintained walking paths can be found throughout Nazareth Retreat Center. Many use them daily for runs, brisk walks, or slow, sight-seeing strolls. Comfortable benches can be found along many of these paths.

Saint Vincent de Paul Catholic Church:  Built in 1854, this historic, Gothic-style church was designed by the well-known architect William Keeley. It was built with materials found on Nazareth’s grounds and limestone from Indiana.

Mass and Vespers are open to all.
Mass: Mon. – Sat. 10:50 A.M. / Sun. 10:30 A.M.

Vespers: Mon. – Fri. 4:45 P.M.
