Since 1898, the grounds of Jesuit Retreat House have provided spiritual peace for people looking to deepen their relationship with God. Now, perhaps more than ever, the sacred space of JRH is a vital gift to Northeast Ohio.

Carve out time to reconnect with the God of love who draws near. Daily Mass and Reconciliation are available during Individually Directed Retreat. IDR Cost includes room, board and director’s stipend. (Limited scholarship money is available).

Contemporary men and women make silent retreats for various reasons. Some are searching for a new way of knowing God that is personal and real. Others use this time to rest in the creative heart of God –to imagine new possibilities, or to sit with gratitude for God’s magnificent work. Still others have reached a time of crossroads or hurdles and come to JRH to find new strength.

Whatever your reason for making a retreat, sacred silence is a gift to the soul. Here, you will experience silence on 57 acres of woods and meadows, complete with outdoor shrines and stations of the cross to aid reflection. The 55-bedroom house provides a home away from home with three chapels, a library, and home-cooked meals.
