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.

The Lodge is suspending our normal retreat schedule from now until the fall, so that we can embark upon our first major renovation in fifty years. Our new Laity Lodge Renovation microsite is chronicling this historic reconstruction project from concept to completion. And in the meanwhile, we are still releasing films, essays, and other dispatches over at The Box Canyon.

If you would like to stay apprised of the renovation process, and stay informed when retreats are again made available, please subscribe to our Laity Lodge newsletter, below.
