Facilities & Grounds

The Benedict Inn Retreat & Conference Center was established as an ecumenical ministry by the Sisters of St. Benedict of Our Lady of Grace Monastery in 1981.  Grounded in gospel values and Benedictine hospitality, the Benedict Inn offers retreat & educational opportunities, and an affordable venue for private meetings and events.  An atmosphere of peace, prayer, and community help to facilitate an integration of body, mind and spirit.  Our meeting rooms, a chapel, newly renovated bedrooms - many with a private bath -, a gift shop, labyrinth, and lovely gardens throughout the grounds.  The quiet and spacious grounds invite reflective relaxation.  A member of the Association of Benedictine Retreat Centers, the Benedict Inn is fully self-supported through our programs and retreats, personal donations, and sales from our gift shop, Shop INN-Spired.  While we receive no financial support from the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, we are in service to them.  Whether you are looking for a group retreat, hosting a meeting or workshop, or looking for some quiet space for a personal retreat, there is room at the Benedict Inn.

​​The Labyrinth at  the Benedict Inn Retreat & Conference Center is a replica an an ancient one constructed around 1220 AD in the stone floor of Chartres Cathedral in France.  The Labyrinth is an archetype, a divine footprint, found in all religious traditions in various forms around the world.  Unlike a maze, the labyrinth has only a single path with no tricks or dead ends.  One cannot get lost on a labyrinth.  The path becomes a mirror for where we are in our lives.  Walking a labyrinth is like a brief pilgrimage.  Walk it with an open heart and mind.  Walk the Labyrinth on your own, or join us for one of our open community labyrinth walks. Check our program schedule for more information.  

Peace & Nature Garden
​​Envisioned as a serene environment for meditation and reflection, and a native plant oasis, the Peace & Nature Garden at the Benedict Inn is now in its 3rd year.  What was once a field of grass now has a walking path, benches, plants, artwork and people enjoying this inspiring place.  The 3-acre garden provides an inviting space for visitors to reflect and experience a connection to God, nature and the natural ecosystem.  Check our schedule for open community guided walks throughout the year.
