Pratista Retreat & Spirituality Center

Renovations for the Future

Project Objective

The objective of this project is to modernize the retreat facilities because the old construction and design of the building was no longer meeting the needs of retreat participants. In order to provide for its sustainability into the future, it was necessary to be able to provide a retreat center that serves those who use it, while also remaining a vital manifestation of the charism of the Order and its Crosier identity and spirituality. In 2020, the Pondok Mitra and Pondok Delapan were renovated (the General Chapter originally planned for Indonesia was to take place in the Pondok Mitra). In 2021, the main Pratista retreat buildings began to be renovated.
