The building sat empty for three years and has required major infrastructure updating to facilitate a Retreat and Conference Center. In keeping with spiritual mission of the Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana, we hope you find St. Joseph’s to be a warm and hospitable place to encounter God.
- fully renovated St. Joseph Chapel (see main page for images of the new Chapel mural), our centerpiece at this spiritual haven;
- new HV/AC system, allowing individual rooms to be climate controlled;
- renovated reception and gift shop area;
- enlarged restrooms;
- updated kitchen;
- expanded rooms to allow space for small group discussions or mini conference;
- second floor renovations to create a hostel-type are for youth and Cursillo-type retreats;
- third floor single and double occupancy rooms;
- former second floor infirmary converted to a retreat area within the retreat center;
…and more projects to be completed over time.
