Spiritual Retreats

Refreshing the Heart, Mind, and Spirit

There is a beautiful space deep in downtown Boerne that offers what you might be seeking for a spiritual retreat or just a few moments of silence within a busy day. When one sets foot inside the Benedictine Sisters’ grounds, there is a welcoming presence and a deep sense of peace. The Sisters’ ministries on “The Hill” are open to all, providing opportunities for nurturing healthy hearts, minds, and spirits. Benedictine core values including balance, care of the Earth, community, hospitality, listening, peace, and prayer are interwoven into the Sisters’ ministries. The main entrance is on Highland Drive.

The Health and Wholeness Center, a ministry of the Benedictine Sisters of Boerne, opened in 1990. It serves as an ecumenical “home away from home” for individuals ages 50 and older. Its overall purpose is to address the needs of the whole person by providing programs designed to enhance the wellness of body, mind, and spirit. The success of the Health and Wholeness Center is due in part to its philosophy of volunteerism which embraces the theme of “Seniors Serving Seniors”.
