Guidelines for visiting the Benedict Inn 

In this process of welcoming you back to the Benedict Inn Retreat & Conference Center, we have implemented  precautionary guidelines for our guests.  To keep us all safe and for your convenience, these guidelines will be posted throughout the building.  

  1. All guests are asked to wear masks while visiting. We ask our guests to provide their own masks.

  2. Please exercise social distancing (6 ft from other people) in all locations within the building.  Our meeting rooms and dining room will be set up to promote social distancing and crowd control.

  3. We ask potential guests to stay home if they are sick.

  4. All guests must be asked a brief series of questions to determine if they are feeling well.

  5. Groups are limited to 30 people or less.

  6. Guests are not permitted in offices.  They may use the phone outside the main office to speak with our staff.

  7. Bathrooms will be sanitized twice a day. 

  8. Guests are strongly encouraged to wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

  9. Hand sanitizer will be available at several locations throughout the building, but we encourage guests to bring a small bottle of hand sanitizer with them.

  10. The food line in the dining room will have a barrier between food and guests.  For your protection, staff will serve all food/drinks.  There will be no self-service as in the past.

  11. Employees will wear personal protective equipment (gloves & masks) when preparing and serving food and when cleaning.

  12. Guests are not allowed to visit the monastery at this time.

May we be guided by the wisdom of St. Benedict who said...

"All guests who present themselves are to be welcomed as Christ..."  Rule of St. Benedict 53:1
