Spiritual Retreat for Veterans Offered in South St. Louis County

The Chapel at White House Retreat

White House Retreat in St. Louis, MO will host their third annual Veteran’s Spiritual Retreat this summer. The three-day event, running June 29 – July 1, is offered to men and women who served in the U.S. Military, and features a series of spiritual talks, small group discussion, quiet time for personal prayer and meditation, non-denominational prayer services, and fellowship. The retreat will be directed by Fr. James Conroy, S.J., a Vietnam era Veteran and Jesuit priest. Veterans of all faiths are welcome to attend! White House hopes the event will promote healing and equip Veterans with faith-based tools to help them cope with life’s stresses.

White House offers this retreat, which includes private overnight accommodations and all meals, at a very minimal cost. The only charge for those attending is a $25 deposit to reserve a space. White House holds various fundraising events throughout the year to help offset the cost of hosting this retreat and sees this event as a way to give back to those who served our country.

Up to 88 Veterans can attend the retreat. The first year saw 24 in attendance and that number doubled in year two. This year, White House Retreat hopes to fill all 88 spaces with Veterans.  Registration is currently open. Those interested can call 314-416-6400.

White House Retreat is located at 7400 Christopher Drive, St. Louis, MO 63129. They offer spiritual retreats and recovery retreats on their 80-acre campus along the banks of the Mississippi River year round. They are a registered 501 C(3) non profit and have been in operation continuously since 1922.
