Tau Center Remains Closed for In-Person Gatherings

  Prayer for a Pandemic

Together, we pray for hope and healing

In the face of uncertainty during the pandemic, let us remember our strength in one another. 

Loving God, Holy One,
Your desire is for our wholeness and well-being.
We hold in tenderness and prayer the collective suffering of our 
   world at this time.
We grieve precious lives lost and vulnerable lives threatened.
We ache for ourselves and our neighbors, standing before an 
   uncertain future.
We pray: may love, not fear, go viral.
Inspire our leaders to discern and choose wisely, aligned with 
   the common good.
Help us to practice social distancing and reveal to us new and creative 
   ways to come together in spirit and in solidarity.
Call us to profound trust in your faithful presence,
You, the God who does not abandon,
You, the Holy One, breathing within us, breathing among us, 
   breathing around us in our beautiful yet wounded world.
– Sr Chris Koellhoffer, IHM

Contemplative Virtual Retreats

Create a Space for Stillness and Reflection This Fall

Fall is a time to celebrate your harvest and a time to rest and reflect on all you have created this year. The arrival of fall brings forth a time to celebrate and acknowledge these accomplishments.’

During this fall season, your spirit is beginning to rest and reflect on triumphs this year. Take time to acknowledge your growth and expansion as a natural evolution of your being. Let us continue moving forward with new ideas and new dreams during the changing season.

With this intention we invite you to create a dedicated space in your home or outside for quiet prayer, contemplation, and reflection on the new energy of fall. This area can be as simple as a comfortable chair with a small table, perhaps near a window to gaze on nature. Fall is a spiritual season of transformation. 

Individual & Directed Retreats

Many people long to find meaning in their lives, to discover their true selves, and to grow closer to God and others. But sometimes, it’s hard to know just where to start. A directed retreat can help you start the process as you attempt to deepen your relationship with the divine and grow in your own personal spirituality.


Small Group Retreats & Programs

Tau Center is not open to small group programs at this time. We anticipate offering in 2022. 



Welcome to Tau Center

We offer a sacred space to assist individuals on their own spiritual journey – whether it is to reconnect with their inner-spirit or whether they are seeking a deeper relationship with God and the world around them. Our programs encourage an awakening of the spirit that leads to hope, healing, peace and transformation.
