|Blessed Trinity Shrine Retreat is located in Alabama just across the river from Columbus, GA in a town formerly known as Holy Trinity, AL. The Missionary Servants of the Most Blessed Trinity began as a religious community here in the early 1900's. Blessed Trinity Shrine Retreat was built in 1965.
“Come apart, and rest awhile,” Jesus told his disciples. We invite all who hear his invitation to join us at Blessed Trinity Shrine Retreat, whether it be for a planned program to nourish their spiritual growth or for time alone in a quiet, prayerful atmosphere where they may listen more deeply to what the Lord is speaking to their hearts.
We are also happy to host programs for Church groups who provide their own programs. We heartily welcome persons of all faiths.
Directed and Private Retreats: Directed and Private Retreats are available and may be arranged on an individual basis by calling the Retreat House (334-855-4474) and making a reservation. On a Directed Retreat, the retreatant is led in a prayer experience by a director who meets with the retreatant daily to reflect and discern together the movement of the Spirit. In a Private Retreat, the retreatant spends time in prayer and reflection without the assistance of a director. You are most welcome to make arrangements for either type of retreat at a time of your own choosing.
Please contact us regarding fees per night for weekdays and for weekends.
Spiritual Direction: Ongoing Spiritual Direction is also available. In Spiritual Direction, a person meets with one's director on a regular basis to share one's journey of faith and to discern the direction in which the Lord is leading the person in prayer and daily life. Arrangements for Spiritual Direction are made on an individual basis. Appointments may be scheduled by calling the Retreat House.
Accommodations: Retreatants have private rooms with adjoining bath. The Retreat House is a modern 40 bedroom facility, air-conditioned throughout. It is situated on 1200 acres of woodlands, which provide ample space for solitude to commune with nature along wooded paths, bordering the Chattahoochee River. Home-cooked meals are served cafeteria-style. A new Hermitage is available for those desiring greater solitude (rates vary).
