Bethany's Mission

    Bethany Retreat House, East Chicago, Indiana, serves as a quiet place in the midst of demanding lives where people can find both space and resources for prayer and reflection.

    Rooted in the mission of Jesus Christ and the tradition of Blessed Catherine Kasper, Bethany is dedicated to help individuals nurture their inner life and respond to the God who dwells within.
