The Benedict XVI Retreat Centre is a purpose built retreat centre for schools and parishes, agencies,
religious orders, communities and movements and other groups. It was established by the Archdiocese
of Sydney as a facility to support an expanded retreat program throughout the Archdiocese. The Catholic
Education Office Sydney joined the Archdiocese in the redevelopment of the Centre with a view to
accommodating the retreat and activity needs of all the systemic schools within the Archdiocese of
Sydney and beyond.
The Centre provides wonderful new facilities to support the pastoral goals of both the Archdiocese and
the CEO Sydney, in particular encouraging the practice of retreat as a way of augmenting existing
programs of faith formation.
The BXVI Centre is open to all and the facilities will have broad appeal to a wide variety of groups
looking for a peaceful venue for a weekend, a few days or longer.
