Lanteri Retreat House

Lanteri Retreat Centre (LRC)


In a world where we often find 24-hour days to be insufficient to achieve our Kingdom goals, we all need time to get away and be with God, just as our Lord Jesus did on a frequent basis. We need Spiritual Exercises in our lives as Christians. By the term “Spiritual Exercises” we mean every method of examination of conscience, meditation, contemplation, of vocal and mental prayer, and of other spiritual activities. For just as taking a walk, journeying on foot and running, are bodily exercises, so we call Spiritual Exercises every way of preparing and disposing the soul to rid itself of all inordinate attachments, and after their removal, seeking and finding the will of God in the disposition of our life for the salvation of our souls. Jesus often would be alone to pray (cf. Mat: 14,23) we too need to withdraw to pray.

Lanteri Retreat Centre (LRC) is very conducive for these Exercises. It provides a tranquil and peaceful environment. A visit to the this Retreat Center is an opportunity to renew yourself, a chance to deepen your relationship with God.

It could be yearly, monthly weekly or as you desire.


We have events/programmes throughout the year, but you are also welcome to arrange for a private retreat or quiet day. We have a team of trained Spiritual Directors who can accompany people who wish to share and reflect on their journey of faith.
