The Retreat Center - Spiritual Center of Maria Stein and Montezuma

The Spiritual Center, often referred to as the Retreat House, now has two locations in Mercer County, Ohio. Our Maria Stein location is about eight miles south of Grand Lake St. Marys. Our new Montezuma location is located beside Grand Lake.

We hope you find both retreat house locations to be a place where you can take time to reflect on your life in peace and quiet. Let this be your home away from home. Please feel free to utilize all that our facilities have to offer. We hope to serve you in the future.

Our Mission

We are Christians dedicated to serving the Lord, each other, families, parishes, and communities. We believe in God the Creator, His son Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit, who guides us through the magisterium of the Catholic Church with its scripture and traditions and through the intercessions of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
