About the Retreat Ministry

The Mount Saint Joseph Conference and Retreat CenterMount Saint Joseph Conference and Retreat Center was established in 1983 as a ministry of the Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph, utilizing the buildings of the former Mount Saint Joseph Academy.

Unfortunately, the majority of the Retreat Center was housed in buildings that are more than 100 years old. The deterioration of the bricks and foundation of the building has made it unsafe for the public to use. On July 9, 2021, the Ursuline Sisters voted to deconstruct the Retreat Center building. (Read article.) The Retreat Ministry continues, offering remote programming and the rental of an Auditorium for single-day programs. The Auditorium is located 12 miles west of Owensboro, Kentucky, on Highway 56.
