Welcome to our International Schoenstatt Retreat CenterLocated between Waukesha and Delafield, WI, our Retreat Center is a place where the Christian soul finds beauty, rest, peace, strength, and a family atmosphere.
About Our Retreat Center
Since 1969 we have been serving the Archdiocese of Milwaukee as a Retreat Center, providing a God-filled space with a prayerful atmosphere through the beauty of nature in the vicinity of the International Schoenstatt Shrine, a chapel dedicated to the Mother of God under the title of Mother Thrice Admirable, Queen, and Victress of Schoenstatt. The beauty surrounding the retreat center makes it a restful place for many pilgrims.
The joyful dedication and vigorous commitment of the Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary to their mission of spiritual formation of the laity, families, youth and so on, fills the Retreat Center with the love of God.
Their presence, service, and prayers, turn the retreat center into an extension of the shrine.
In this manner, the sisters continue to live up to their calling of “being Mary” for the world.
For more information about the Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary visit their website here.
In connection with the Schoenstatt Shrine, our Retreat Center is a spiritual home for the national and international Schoenstatt family.
Hand in hand with volunteers and the leaders of the Schoenstatt Movement, we offer Schoenstatt retreats to people of all walks of life.
We also serve as a retreat center for schools, parishes, and other organizations of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.

Father Joseph Kentenich (1885-1968), the founder of Schoenstatt, envisioned our Retreat Center on this land as an international center.
People from all over the world come here to receive formation, increase their knowledge of Schoenstatt history and its spirituality, as well as to come in contact with the places blessed by the presence of the founder of Schoenstatt, Father Joseph Kentenich.
