Your retreat

St Michael’s Priory offers a quiet space for your retreat in a peaceful setting situated in the village of Willen, one of the ancient villages of Buckinghamshire that is now part of the new city of Milton Keynes.

We are close to the 17th Century church of St Mary Magdalene (built by Robert Hooke for Dr Richard Busby – Headmaster of Westminster School in 1680)

We are a working Community, a house of the Society of the Sacred Mission and we warmly welcome you to share in our Community life for the duration of your retreat.

We offer both private and individually guided retreats (IGR) on either a day or residential basis.

Day Retreat

Our day Retreats run from 10.00 to 4.00pm, during the day one of our Guest Rooms is available for you, enabling you to rest or sleep and keep silence if you wish.

Residential Retreat

Runs from lunchtime on the day of arrival to after lunch on the day of departure.

Individually Guided Retreat

On an individually guided retreat you will be accompanied by an experienced director throughout your retreat, and will meet with your director for a short time each day for support and guidance. Please let us know when booking if you would like this facility.
