“Silence is not simply the absence of noise. It is a necessary condition for discernment and reflection, for meditation and prayer, and for “welcoming the word” into our minds and hearts.”

Archbishop Robert J. Carlson

Archdiocese of St. Louis

Days of Recollection Retreats

In addition to our Ignatian Silent Retreat Schedule,we offer regularly scheduled days of rest and recollection. Beginning at 10am and ending at 3pm, these day-long retreats consist of two conferences and Mass as well as built in time for Adoration and an opportunity for Confession. Lunch is provided. There is no set cost for these retreats.  Rather, we invite retreatants to prayerfully make a donation to Broom Tree. It is through these gifts that Broom Tree remains available and accessible to all.  Space is limited. Register early.

    “Remain in me, as I remain in you…Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit,because without me you can do nothing.” John 10:4-5 The goal of Catholic marriage is to die as saints under the tutelage of one another’s love. During this retreat, you and your spouse will have the blessed opportunity to spend time receiving from the very heart of God all that you need to love in this way. The environment at Broom Tree provides beautiful, peaceful surroundings, good food, and all the time and good direction you need to dispose yourselves to the river of grace that lives in your marriage. The retreat begins on Friday night with registration from 5:00-6:30 p.m. and runs through lunchtime on Sunday. Broom Tree sponsored retreats are run by donation. Our cost is $360/couple.

    We ask that you prayerfully consider your gift.
