Mount Mary Retreat Centre

Welcome to a sacred place: Mount Mary, where the woods encircle it from every side, in the Golden Horseshoe, by the Meadowlands. A place where we continue to celebrate the gift and diversity of life…

Mount Mary is a centre for spiritual renewal, embracing Eastern and Western Catholic traditions while welcoming all denominations seeking God through times of quiet, reflection, prayer, growth in wisdom and creativity.

The Centre comprises just over one hundred acres of woodlands, walking trails, rolling hills, spacious lawns, a peaceful pond, and a great variety of magnificent trees; all these create a welcoming space for healing, deepening spirituality, and leading to inner freedom. With these comes service with love.

About Us

The Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate, an international religious congregation of the Byzantine Ukrainian Catholic Church, own and operate Mount Mary Retreat Centre.

Deriving focus from the spirit of our co-foundress, Blessed Josaphata Hordashevska “to serve where the need is the greatest”, we minister with trust, simplicity, hospitality and joy in the areas of human development and spiritual growth.

Mount Mary Retreat Centre provides educational, spiritual, and leadership groups a place to hold their programs. The Sisters coordinate the Retreat Centre, host retreats and workshops and assist in the music ministry. The Centre offers a peaceful welcoming atmosphere and the prayerful support of the Sisters on the Mount.

The Centre, while Catholic, is an ecumenical space welcoming anyone desiring to deepen their spiritual life. It also welcomes the opportunity to serve as a centre for education in its various forms.

The facilities, grounds, sleeping accommodations and meals at Mount Mary provide a perfect setting of support for group retreats, personal retreat, overnight stays, day visits, workshop/seminar or conference.
