Many of our guests feel a sense of relaxation as soon as they proceed up our driveway from Marriottsville Road!
The Bon Secours logo, a fluer de lis, is a sign of ‘good help.’
Welcome to the Retreat and Conference Center at Bon Secours!
A statue of the Blessed Mother stands near our Labyrinth.
Our guests admire the details of this statue of Mary and baby Jesus on our grounds.
Enjoy the practice of walking the labyrinth as you reflect on various aspects of life’s journey.
“The point of a maze is to find its center. The point of a labyrinth is to find your center.”
Enjoy the quiet of the early morning hours as the sun rises on our spiritual center.
Enjoy the quiet of the reflecting pond area. Walk, sit on a bench and read or look at the beautiful koi fish.
The autumn colors cast a beautiful reflection on our pond.
Take a stroll through our peace garden and meditate, read, pray, or construct a small rock tower.
This area for meditation and prayer is reached by following the paved pathway along the West side of the building, past the statue of Mary. Our Peace Pole, which is part of a world-wide project to inspire peace, is planted at the entrance of this Zen-type garden. Please take a moment to join your prayer for peace with those of many others who have been here before you.
Visit our Peace Garden and spend time in prayer or building a rock tower in the stillness of nature.
The Gazebo is a lovely, covered space to read or write.
The Priest’s Porch is a nice, partially covered space to relax and can host special events too.
