Established in 2005, Our Lady Queen of Peace Retreat Center is the result of Bishop J. Terry Steib’s vision to “Help others discover and grow their own spirituality.”
Sr. Eileen Fucito, C.P., and Sr. Anna Marie Becker, C.P., bring to life the Passionist Charism. In the tradition of St. Paul of the Cross and Elizabeth Prout (founders of the Passionist communities of men and women), they recognize the Passion of Jesus as the “greatest work of divine Love” and the revelation of the power of the resurrection to overcome the forces of evil. The Passionist Charism embraces suffering and connects with God in the midst of pain.
Like St. Paul the Apostle (1 Corinthians), Passionists preach Christ and Him Crucified. They see the Passion of Christ in the suffering of the world. Passionists make the Paschal Mystery the center of their lives.
Our Lady Queen of Peace Retreat Center in Dancyville, Tennessee exists as a place where all of God’s people, young and old, can come to be refreshed. The quiet atmosphere allows God to be heard speaking to each person. Recharging and reconnecting with God, listening and hearing His voice, and deepening your spirituality will renew your life – your family – and your community.
