How do I register for an event?

Events sponsored by the Spiritual Life Center are listed on the Program Calendar page, and you may register and pay for those events online.  You will need to create a user account; but that's easy!  (Click here for the calendar of events page.) You may also call the Spiritual Life Center and register for a sponsored event.

For those events that are hosted by other groups, you will need to contact the group to register for those.  Often Diocesan groups have weekend retreats at the Center.  Click here for a listing of those groups.

Do you have Mass and confession?

Yes we do!  Check out the "Mass Times" tab for current Mass and confession times--and for more opportunities for prayer.

May I visit the Spiritual Life Center without being part of a group or retreat?

Absolutely!  The Spiritual Life Center is a wonderful, holy place, and everyone is invited to explore the grounds and the building.  You may wish to visit the About Us / Tours page to learn more!

Are there scholarships for your events?

A scholarship is available to all individuals in need to enable them to attend an event sponsored by the Spiritual Life Center (this includes retreats, workshops, and series).  Each individual is allowed one scholarship per year (this is from request date to request date, not calendar year).  Find more information on scholarships here.

This does NOT apply to Diocesan group events such as Engaged Encounter, Marriage Encounter, Cursillo, Retrouvaille, etc.  Click here for contact information for those groups.

May I bring my nursing baby to the Spiritual Life Center?

Non-separating infants are welcome at both day and evening programs at the Center.  Because of peaceful silence maintained on overnight retreats, currently only specially designated family weekend retreats allow babies to attend.

Can I eat a meal without being a part of a group?

The Spiritual Life Center Dining room operates whenever retreat groups or conferences are using the building.  Most often we are able to accommodate individuals on days when meals have already been scheduled.  Please call the Center at (316) 744-0167 a few hours in advance to sign up for a meal.

Do you need volunteers?

Yes.  We are always seeking stewards to help run the Center.  You may view a list of volunteer positions and fill out a form here.

Do I have to be Catholic to have a retreat at the Spiritual Life Center?

No.  The Spiritual Life Center welcomes many religious groups of other faith traditions as well as community non-profit organizations.  Please visit our Plan Your Event page for more information.

You are also welcome to attend any of our sponsored programs and retreats.

Also, all are welcome to come for a private retreat.

Can I reserve the Center's space for my wedding reception or family reunion?
