Marywood Retreat Center

We invite you to visit us at Marywood Franciscan Spirituality Center!

Located on the shore of Trout Lake in the scenic Wisconsin Northwoods, Marywood Franciscan Spirituality Center is a peaceful place to nourish mind, body and spirit.

Marywood Franciscan Spirituality Center engages persons seeking greater meaning in life and a deeper relationship with God, others, self and all creation by providing space for inspiration, reflection and solitude.

We offer programs and retreats year-round and spiritual direction on and off-site. We offer space for hosted groups and private retreats. Marywood is a ministry sponsored by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration based in La Crosse, Wisconsin.

Retreats at Marywood

Choosing to set aside a day, a weekend, even a week for a spiritual retreat can be a worthwhile experience. On retreat, there is quality time for bringing one’s life situations, events, and experiences to prayer and a deeper connection with God. The retreat offers one the grace to be oneself, the opportunity to be refreshed physically and spiritually, and the invitation to deeper transformation.
