Retreat Center

 It is with great sadness that we share with you that
due to COVID 19, and for the safety and health of all,
St. Vincent Pallotti Retreat Center
is closed
until further notice at this time.

Thank You for your understanding in this difficult time of the pandemic.


In 1962 the St. Vincent Retreat Center was established in Elkhorn, WI a beautiful area 35 miles southwest of Milwaukee. This Roman Catholic Center is named after the founder of the Pallottine order of religious priests, brothers, sisters, and laity.  It is open to those of any faith and was established to assist individuals in the process of deepening and strengthening one's relationship with God, self, others, and creation.


The center is situated on 148 wooded acres of rolling hills in a very beautiful rural setting.  The environment in any season of the year is perfect for answering the call of Jesus to...  

"Come by yourself to an out-of-the-way place and rest for awhile."  
Mark 6:31

St. Vincent Pallotti Retreat Center serves all types of groups throughout the year.  On weekends, if you are visiting, you will generally see youth groups from parishes having a retreat -- often this is a time in preparation for Confirmation. 

During the week you may see parish groups or classes from schools who make their way to this special space for a day and/or an overnight time of reflection.  Other groups we serve include Marriage Preparation, Grieving and Loss, Religious Communities, Children of Alcoholics, the Elderly, school faculties and various parish committees.

Long view of Retreat HouseOur facility and grounds provide the perfect environment for a successful group retreat experience.  In fact, we've just completed the renovation of our dining area which provides more space for gathering, meeting and eating!!
