Laity Lodge is an ecumenical Christian retreat center established in 1961 in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Scholars, theologians, musicians, artists and guests from all walks of life gather in our outpost along the Frio River for the purpose of encouraging and renewing the laity – the people of God. Slowly, but surely, we aim to recover a sense of the sacred: God at work, in and among us, in the most ordinary of activities.
