  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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
