St. Mary’s Retreat House greets you as you enter the grounds of the Dominican Sisters Motherhouse. This large homey building is a sacred space for prayer, reflection and relaxation. Each weekend, from September through May, St. Mary’s accommodates about 60 women or men who wish to step aside from their ordinary daily routines to spend quality time deepening their relationship with Jesus.

Amidst the bustling growth of Oxford and Lake Orion, St. Mary’s offers a place of peace and quiet surrounded by the natural beauty of trees, flowers and grassy fields. Discover outdoor shrines, stations of the cross and quiet resting places throughout the 40 acres of peaceful atmosphere.
