Retreat. Renew. Refocus.

Laity Lodge is a place of subtle discovery: an ecumenical retreat center in the Texas Hill Country. Since 1961, guests from all walks of life have made their way to this outpost along the Frio River, slowing down to discover—in nature, in conversations around the table, in times of quiet reflection, and in participation in the arts—the nearness and goodness of God.
