"Preached" retreats are more interactive and less "preachy" than this customary nomenclature suggests! Usually spanning a weekend (sometimes a few weekdays), these retreats are led by a "retreat master" who offers a series of "conferences" or talks following some kind of theme. You'll find our 2021 offerings below. The requested donation covers room, board, and conferences. To make reservations, click on the links below, or call 661 944-2178, or email

Please be aware, given our remote location, internet service is unreliable.  Sometimes the internet may not work, or it may be slow.  Please do not count on internet service being available according to your plans.  In addition, only AT&T and TMobile provide reception, while other mobile carriers do not provide reception at the Abbey. 

We thank you for your support during these difficult times. God bless.
