White House Retreat

The SHF annual Men's White House Retreat is from Thursday evening to Lunch on Sunday .  It is usually held in June.  White House has been operating retreats with socially distanced formats for  a year now without incident. Chapel distancing and meal procedures have been modified. Those interested in joining us this year should contact Mike Panneri at 849-5557.  White House, sitting high on the bluffs of the Mississippi River in South County, is a great place to reflect, pray and just rest a while.  Located in St. Louis, MO, White House is a Jesuit retreat house based on The Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius.

Since 1922, White House has been offering 3 day preached retreats throughout the year on our beautiful 80 acre campus located on the bluffs of the Mississippi River. On each retreat four or five priests are available for private conferences and the celebration of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick.  People of all faiths are welcome at White House!

Mass is celebrated each day and at night there is Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.  Explore the beautiful campus, walk the Way of the Cross, and pray at the shrines of the Sacred Heart, the Holy Family, Our Lady and St. Joseph.

The minimum age for attending a White House retreat is 18.

Weekend retreats begin with dinner at 7:00 p.m. Thursday and end Sunday at 2pm following lunch.

Weekday retreats begin with lunch at 1:00 p.m. Monday and end with brunch at noon Thursday.

White House has never had a fixed charge for our retreat.  We have always asked for a free will offering from the retreatants, based on what they choose to give.
