St. Mary’s offers four services a day at the convent on behalf of the world. All of its services are open to the public. It also offers at least two quiet days each year at the convent and one annual weekend retreat at St. Mary’s Sewanee Retreat Center in June for all who may be interested. Sisters are also available for spiritual direction at the convent upon request and are available as retreat leaders and presenters of parish programs in other areas. In keeping with an ancient monastic practice, we offer hospitality for individuals who wish to make a retreat or simply wish to rest and renew themselves. Groups are also welcome to make day visits to learn about the Community and its ministries, enjoy its flower gardens, fruit orchards, vegetable garden and its prayer garden. Groups should contact the Sisters in advance of a visit to work out the details.
