Welcome to Broom Tree, a South Dakota Jewel, owned and operated by the Catholic Diocese of Sioux Falls. This unique venue rests on 300 acres of some of the most beautiful land Eastern South Dakota has to offer.

Nestled in the rolling hills of Missouri Valley, Broom Tree provides a picturesque setting that makes for a tranquil and serene environment. Within walking distance from pristine Lake Marindahl, the facilities provide a perfect atmosphere where one can come away from the constant demands of everyday life. The peaceful grounds, adjacent lake, Conference Center, Lodge, cabins and prairie church provide a place of recollection and prayer for people of all ages and faiths.                          

"For years I have recommended Broom Tree Retreat Center as a place to make a good, silent, Ignatian retreat.  The facility, the setting, and the capable directors combine to make this a fruitful choice when seeking a deep encounter with Christ in prayer. I renew that recommendation."

    Fr. Timothy Gallagher, O.M.V, author of Discernment of Spirits & The Examen Prayer
