Prayer & Tour Schedule

Design Your Own Sabbatical

Saint Meinrad offers a place of peace and refreshment for those seeking rest from intensive work and ministry. Plan your personalized sabbatical stay at Saint Meinrad for one to 10 months, between August 1 and May 31. Sabbatical guests are men and women from all areas of Church life and academia, many of whom are involved in ministry.

Opportunities

  • Prayer: Participate in Liturgy of the Hours and Mass, with the monastic community in the Archabbey Church or with students in St. Thomas Aquinas Chapel. Regular opportunities for Reconciliation and Eucharistic Adoration are available.

  • Classes and Retreats: 2020欧洲杯体育在线网投For an additional charge, you can take courses in the Seminary and School of Theology for credit or audit. Courses are available on weekdays, weekends or online. Our Guest House offers a regular schedule of retreats.

  • Cultural Events: Lectures, concerts and other cultural events are held regularly on campus. The Archabbey Library art gallery hosts a new exhibit nearly every month. Nearby state and national parks feature nature and historical activities. Louisville, KY, and Evansville, IN, - about an hour from campus - offer a wide range of cultural opportunities.

  • Wellness Program: On-campus fitness opportunities include a gym with exercise equipment; basketball, tennis and volleyball courts; horseshoe pits; a soccer field; disc golf; a baseball diamond; and lakes, roads, and trails for biking and hiking. Wellness staff offers aerobics classes, personal training and advice on healthy living.

  • Archabbey Library: If your sabbatical includes a study or research component, our library has primary texts in a variety of critical editions, secondary scholarly literature, and access to many journals, in print and electronic formats. Saint Meinrad belongs to a number of library consortia, and interlibrary loan is available. Staff members can assist with various research needs.
