Is St. Mary’s Sewanee available to host our group during the holidays?

St. Mary’s Sewanee does not offer retreats or host partner groups during the weeks of Easter, Thanksgiving, or Christmas.

In addition, there are other holidays that the retreat center will be closed for groups including Memorial Day & Labor Day weekends.

Our staff works long hours during the year to provide spiritual experiences for sojourners who pass through.
The time the employees have for their own Rest, Renewal, and Reconnection is very important and vital to positive production throughout the year.
Although sometimes SMS can act as a hotel, we are more than that. St. Mary’s Sewanee is a spiritual development center, and the time off for our staff is critical to our overall mission.
