Coronavirus Response


What We Are Doing to Keep Our Guests and Staff Safe

In this season of Covid-19, we, at Our Lady of Bethesda Retreat Center, simply want to continue to serve you as best as we can and keep providing the rich programs we have offered over the past almost 30 years, both in person and virtually.  

To that end the retreat center building is closed until further notice. Our priests and staff are all working remotely to design, promote, and present on-line retreat options for you. Please see the link to the right for a listing of our Virtual Programming to serve you!


The only exceptions to the above are:

  • Outside Confessions (see the Virtual Event Listing for dates, times, and more information.  click here)
  • Retreat Center Grounds
    As long as you maintain adequate social distancing and respect the space of others, you are welcome to walk our grounds and pray at the Outdoor Stations of the Cross, Our Lady's Rosary Walk, etc.

Be assured of our prayers for you. Stay safe, well, and close to Christ.
The Priests and Staff of Our Lady of Bethesda Retreat Center

We Need Your Help!

Cancelling our programs significantly impacts the Center.  Our programs help us to defray some of the costs of keeping the doors of OLB open! And, we estimate our monthly losses to be upward of $40,000.  

Donations are what fill the gap. 

Would you consider in your almsgiving a donation to OLB?  Any amount will help us over the hump, and a monthly recurring offering to stabilize our finances would be especially helpful.  In whatever amount, however, you can make the difference in the retreat center’s making it through this temporary downturn.
