Our new construction of the Chaplain’s Hermitage is complete


We have raised the funds to build a new hermitage near the chapel where a priest can stay for extended periods to be on site for mass, confessions, and other priestly ministry. This allows us to have daily mass many times while you are here on retreat.

Vision of Peace Featured in St Louis Review

Vision of Peace Hermitages was the front page story on the October 9th issue of the St. Louis Archdiocese newspaper. The reporter and photographer each came and experienced overnight retreats in our hermitages and this helped them really capture the spirit of the place in words and pictures. The online version of the story is here: Hermitages Offer Solitude in Beauty of God’s Creation
