Please leave a comment about your retreat experience at Bethany.
We have been coming to Bethany since 1997. This year will be our 10th or 11th trip out to your facility. As one of the Cherry Hill NJ mens group (Drumming Dudes), it has been my privilege to have been there even when the chapel was being finished. Bethany is definitely a special place. A quiet and holy place that will forever be my favorite retreat experience. Bethany goes “over the top” with regards to a retreat experience. The food, the cleanliness, and spiritual feeling are second to none. I cannot say enough about our times there. Our interactions with Srs. Therese, Karen, Suzanne, & Ruth Anne, as well as with Fr. Phil, have been more than can be expected. I would be remiss if I did not say a good word or two about the staff. They also have been extremely efficient and nice to deal with.
Great to hear from you! We are looking forward to seeing you and the men this week. It is always a joy to have you and the men with us every other year.
If one desires a serene, loving, caring place in which to experience deep spiritual transformation, or even just a deep spiritual rest, this is the place! The grounds and buildings are simply beautiful, and the availability of committed. caring spiritual directors is terrific. It is wonderful to be able to attend Daily Mass at Bethany as a way to further deepen one’s spiritual growth. I highly recommend a retreat at Bethany as a great way to enter into a deeper relationship with God.
The centering prayer periods and having compassionate facilitators made all the difference in the world.
Safe and loving place. The silence was very positive. Stillness was healing.
7+ days of silence to hear the Lord. The amazing way God joins a community of strangers and we become as one by the end – Without a look or a word or a touch. The mystical union of souls and hearts in love with LOVE…
The new website look wonderful! And…”Thank You” for the memorial to Sister Therese!

Dear Deacon Nick,
Thank you for letting us know especailly the memorial to our dear Sr. Therese. Enjoy the day!
One of my favorite places in the world. Words could not describe the peace filled moments and joy filled days I have experienced in this holy place. God IS spoken, and speaks, here.
Great to hear from you! We have missed you and thank you for your beautiful comment. Hope to have you back on retreat in the near future.
Bethany Open Studio – a mini retreat/meditation/creative inspiration and rejuvenation opportunity that is held about once a month for a free-will donation. Participants paint, knit, wander the grounds, take photographs, write poetry, etc. And the lunches provided are great – good food and good company.
Your new website is lovely and very easy to maneuver from one site to the next. Well done. I especially love the photos; without words, they tell the beauty of the quiet welcoming strength that is Bethany Retreat Center. God Bless you all. Monica
Thank you so much for your kind words and letting us know about the flow/use of the website. Ariel who is working with me this summer and Shannon our webmaster did a great job!
