About Us

In 2015, the Sisters established the St. Joseph Retreat Center on the beautiful 17 acre grounds of St. Joseph Hill Academy. Housed in the original convent building, the Retreat Center offers a perfect setting for reflection and renewal.

The Retreat Center is open to both religious and non-religious retreats. We provide a variety of scheduled day programs as well as overnight accommodations for overnight, weekend, and extended-stay retreats that can be private or directed. In addition to our scheduled programs, the center is available to use for days of renewal and recollection, meetings, gatherings, discussions, conferences, seminars, and other spiritual assemblies. Groups may bring their own presenters or we can provide a member of our staff.

The Retreat Center is also open to businesses, not-for-profits, small groups, associations and the like. Conference and meeting rooms can be reserved at hourly or daily rates. The maximum capacity for the meeting rooms is 25 adults.

We are located within walking distance of the South Beach Boardwalk, providing our guests with stunning views of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and Lower New York Bay. A direct bus line to the free Staten Island Ferry and all that Manhattan has to offer is directly outside the grounds.
