Church Staff Retreats

At Tau Center, we understand how busy your faith work is and how important it is to your local community. That’s why we offer retreats for churches and other faith communities to give you and your staff the space and time to refresh and rejuvenate your own spirits and bring renewed energy back to your congregations.  

We encourage your staff to leave their daily surroundings and use Tau Center as a space to focus not on the work you do, but why you do it. Whether it’s time for quiet reflection, a meeting space to share observations, or a program designed to lead your staff through a day of spiritual rejuvenation, our retreats can be customized to meet your group’s needs.

Many of the Wheaton Franciscan Sisters have worked in parishes and are available to facilitate and/or help plan your retreat based on your interests or topics. Our Sisters can help supplement a spiritual atmosphere through creative prayer or spiritual meditation as a part of your day at Tau Center. 

If you are interested in such a retreat, please call Tau Center at 630-909-6805 or fill out the Retreat Inquiry form to the right and we can help plan your day.


 …We need to create spaces where pastoral workers can be helped and healed, places where faith itself… is renewed… where deeper discernment about our experiences and life itself is undertaken in the light of the Gospel, for the purpose of directing individual and social decisions toward the good and the beautiful.
— Pope Francis
