“Our men’s ACTS group from St Monica and St Richard returned again for our retreat to Pallottine. The Holy Spirit moved among us. Thanks to the Pallottine staff for their hospitality. As director of this retreat, I enjoyed working with Marcia. Jen and her team prepared delicious meals. The overnight staff were very helpful. Let’s all support their fund raising for the new chapel doors and carpet. The founding sisters work carries on!”

“Our group has been having it’s “Women’s Retreat” at the Pallottine Renewal Center” for over 20 years.  We love the facility, it has everything you could ever want or need for a retreat.  Everything you need is there, from tables, comfy chairs, dry erase boards to a sound system and Wi-Fi, small quiet rooms, a beautiful chapel, a small kitchen with an ice machine, sink, fridge, and coffee maker.  It’s location for us is perfect, so close to home, yet its setting makes you feel like you are away from the busy city and busy-ness of life!“

“Pallottine Renewal Center has provided hospitality, warmth and personal care to Ascension’s Foundations of Ministry Leadership Formation program for several years.  Our participants, who keep a very fast pace in their corporate jobs, quickly move into a rhythm of community and reflection at Pallottine, aided by welcome and cheerful service of the staff, the ample space for both conversation and solitude and the peaceful beauty of the land and gardens.”

Celeste Mueller, VP Ministry Formation, Ascension

“For the past seven years, Pallottine has served as the perfect place for SLUH’s Diversity Club, ACES, to hold its annual retreat.  Our students and faculty have found the accommodations to be comfortable, the food to be tasty and nutritious, and the staff to be extremely hospitable.  With great indoor spaces for meetings, contemplation, and rec time, and great outdoor spaces to walk, exercise, and reflect, we are able to create an experience for our students that is both meaningful and prayerful.  The unique and beautiful chapel has also served us well for Masses, prayer services, and individual and group reflection.  We are excited to return each year for our retreat.“

Dan Schuler, ACES Moderator, Saint Louis University High School

“We have had three conferences at Pallottine and the hospitality at Pallottine is what is most special to me.  We are warmly welcomed and made to feel like we are at home.  Any special needs we might have are quickly attended to in such a positive manner.  Each staff member we encountered seemed to always give us the impression that accommodating us was their first priority.  We are going back soon for a fourth conference!“

“Not only is the Pallottine Renewal Center associated with a remarkable and inspiring story – and it is a story not just from the past, but an ongoing story that continues unfolding in the present – it is a genuine treasure in terms of its architecture and interior.  The Pallottine Center represents an exceptional example of mid-20th century modern design that remains essentially intact, inside and out, with details that usually are lost to updates and ‘improvements’ over time.”
