  • Do I have to be Catholic to come to the Abbey?
    Absolutely not! The Abbey of the Hills hosts and sponsors events open to people of various faiths, and people hoping to find faith—and peace.
  • Who are the owners of the Abbey?
    The Abbey of the Hills is a nonprofit 501(c)(3), thus there are no owners of the AOTH. It is overseen by a Board of Directors and day-to-day operations are overseen by the Abbey's Executive Director, Dcn Paul Treinen.
  • Do I need to be part of an event/retreat to come to the Abbey?
    Many folks come to the Abbey for a group event, but a great many simply come to experience its peace apart from a group. We welcome individual stays for one night or multiple nights. We have various lodging room options—including our secluded lakeside hermitage cabins.

    No pets are allowed in or on the Abbey property. Service dogs with certified documentation are allowed. Please call ahead when planning to bring your service dog.
