A place apart with the Lord

Come! Learn again to live for God Alone.

The Montfort Spiritual Center serves as a place of welcome, quiet prayer and reflection. Situated on 20+ acres of land within walking distance of the Great South Bay, Montfort Spiritual Center is a great place to allow God’s tender love to touch your heart and life. This retreat and conference center is yet another way that we seek to honor the missionary example of our founder and to spread the gospel. Forming hearts and minds to better understand one’s relationship to God in Jesus is at the forefront of all we do at this place of renewal.

The center is located in our former seminary and was converted into a retreat house and conference centre in the late 1970’s. Since then countless men and women have come for programs on prayer, spirituality, the religious life, and to be renewed in their commitment to walk as a friend of Jesus. We welcome large groups up to 50 for weekend and multi-day retreats. Here you will find a facility that is large enough to give personal space to just about everyone, while also giving your group the flexibility to work together.  Montfort Spiritual Center also welcomes small groups for one-day retreats, workshops or meetings. Regular conferences on the spirituality of Saint Louis de Montfort are offered throughout the year.  Any priest, religious, deacon or church minister who wishes to have some quiet time for personal retreat is also welcome to come and make use of this wonderfully bright and peaceful facility.

This Center is also the home of Montfort Publications where we continue the work of spreading St. Louis de Montfort’s teachings through the printed word and other forms of media.
