Mission Statement

The Benedict Inn Retreat & Conference Center, a ministry of the Sisters of St. Benedict of Beech Grove, Indiana enhances lives through programs and rental facilities in a hospitable, peaceful environment.

The Sisters of Our Lady of Grace are moving into the future and have decided to build a new monastery. We will be rebuilding on the same property at 1402 Southern Avenue, Beech Grove, Indiana. The sisters will continue to live in the current monastery. The monastery and Benedict Inn Retreat & Conference Center will be taken down once the new monastery is completed.  The Benedict Inn Retreat & Conference Center will remain open for the next 15 months, until May 31, 2024.  

Please direct inquiries regarding reservations to Sr. Sheila Marie Fitzpatrick, OSB at   Watch our website or visit in the future for updates!
