Our History

Host or Attend an Event

MRCC is the perfect place to host an event, retreat, or youth program. We also offer retreats and events throughout the year, all of which support our organization!

A Gem Worth Protecting

The 120 acres that encompasses the Marianist Retreat Center is a true gem. The property sits adjacent to the Meramec River and features miles of forest trails, cliffs, pine forests, streams, meadows, a labyrinth, and a sculpture garden. We envision the greatest use of our 120 acres is to help all connect with the divine.

Mother Teresa once wrote,

We need to find God, and God cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature, trees, flowers, grass grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence. We need silence to be able to touch souls.”

An Abundance of Goodness

Challenged by our Marianist charism we are called by God, formed by Mary, and sent by Christ to share the Good News through this retreat ministry. It seems as though St. Paul was speaking to us when he wrote,

And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of every-thing, you may share abundantly in every good work”

2 Cor. 9:8
