Take Spirituality to the Next Level!

This Holiday season, we want to thank you for your continuing support of our mission here at White House.  We believe the spiritual impact we are having makes a difference in the everyday lives of our retreatants.  2016 has been a great year at White House and we hope you will continue to support us this holiday season.


Your support is helping us reach more people and provide the best possible retreat experience for them.

·      This year over 4,200 men and women came on retreat, with more than 800 here for the first time.

·      We held our second annual “St. Michael’s Retreat” for area first responders. 

·      We held our first retreat for U.S. Military Veterans over Fourth of July weekend.

·      We have added additional retreat offerings for women and currently offer the largest number of women’s retreats in our 94 year history.

·      Over 1000 people attended our quarterly “Ignatian Spirituality Lecture Series” events.

·      Public restrooms have been renovated and are now handicap accessible.

·      We constructed an additional 6 bedrooms, bringing our overall capacity up to 90 rooms.

·      Additional signage was installed so first time guests can better navigate our campus.

·      We are continuing our cherished tradition of welcoming all who wish to make a White House retreat, regardless of their financial situation.

We find our growth very inspiring, a sign from God that we are doing what God wants us to do.  However, only with your generosity can we make continuous improvements to our facility and further our mission! We need your tax-deductible gift to help us bridge the gap between our weekly retreat offerings and the actual cost of welcoming all who desire to come to White House. 

Know that you and your family will be in our prayers during this Christmas season.


In the Lord,
