Retreats & Events

Please click on our events to find out more about these retreats, which are sponsored by the Bon Secours Retreat and Conference Center. If you would like information about scheduling a group conference to come to our Center, please contact our Sales Manager, Rainey Taylor, at 410-442-3144. Conferences are distinguished from retreats because the group comes to our center for the facilities, lodging and/or meals, but they have their own presenter and attendees. Retreats are events that we plan here at the Center and are open to the public to attend.

Please note that we are an adult-only Retreat & Conference Center, so our retreat and event registrations are only open to those who are 18 and over. Thank you.

For more details, additional programs and registration information please call: 410.442.3120
