Hildegard of Bingen: A Woman for Our Times

March 17, 2023 - March 19, 2023

Benedictine Sisters of Cullman Retreat Center

Explore the life and gifts of Hildegard of Bingen, a Benedictine visionary, artist, composer, and physician who lived in the 1100s. This retreat will include reflection on many of her visions, using her remarkable paintings and writings. We will also ponder some of her suggestions for living a deeper spiritual life, as well as enjoy music she composed for liturgical prayer. There will be time for personal reflection and some group sharing.

Retreat Director: Sister Mary McGehee, OSB



Intensive & Post-Intensive Centering Prayer Retreat

June 20, 2023 - June 27, 2023

Benedictine Sisters Retreat Center in Cullman

Fr. Bill Fickel will be leading this eight day retreat which provides an opportunity to go deeper into the silence with up to three hours of centering prayer a day.  All meals are in silence, and most days are spent in what is called "grand silence" when you are asked not to speak at all or even make eye contact. 

If you are interested in the retreat, contact Katy Smith at

or 205-410-1493.
