So often people tell us how much they enjoy being away from all the stresses and distractions of everyday life during their stay at St. Benedict Center. A person doesn’t have to think of cooking or other household chores. Plus, a person has distance to phones, email and social networking. Cellphones don’t even work in the Center. On the other hand, if somebody needs to reach you while you are here, they can call the phone number of St. Benedict Center, 402-352-8819, and the message will be posted for you. Emergency messages will be delivered immediately.

: Especially during the week the Center is ideal for spending time by oneself because weekdays tend to be even quieter. On weekends the place is busier with various groups, whereas during the week it is possible that you are all by yourself or share the facility with only a few guests.
