CHICAGO CENACLE RETREAT CENTER
In the midst of the city, a PLACE of PEACE and SERENITY for individuals and groups. The Cenacle Sisters, trained in the work of retreats, religious education and other forms of the pastoral ministry, invite people of all faiths to take a pause from the noise, rush and impersonal technology of our world. You can plan your own program or the Cenacle Sisters will arrange the day with you. There are 60 private rooms, large conference/meeting rooms, dining room, chapel, library and small lounges, all air-conditioned.
Retreats are scheduled regularly on weekends throughout the year. Longer retreats of five or more days are planned in the summer months. General retreats are open to everyone. Other retreats, for special interest groups such as A.A., Charismatic, Bereavement, etc. are held at intervals.
