Offering hospitality to guests is a very important part of our Benedictine practice. In Chapter 53 of his Rule, St. Benedict stipulates that all guests are to be received as Christ, who said, "I was a stranger, and you welcomed me." (Mt. 25:35)
Our guest house is open to people of all faiths for individual and group retreats and days of recollection. We also welcome writers looking for a quiet place to work, as well as out-of-town guests who come to Windsor for family reunions, graduations or other local events. We provide staples, such as coffee, tea, sugar, Splenda, etc., but since the recent departure of our helper, we are asking that guests bring and prepare their own food.
The guest house has five single bedrooms, one double room, a living room, kitchen and three shared bathrooms. We also have two guest hermitages, each consisting of a one-room cabin with a kitchenette and bathroom with shower.
Guests are welcome to attend all of our worship services. A sister is available by appointment for spiritual direction. Group retreats can include one or two conferences by a sister, if the group so desires.
