Norbertine Center for Spirituality

A Sanctuary for Seekers

The Norbertine Center for Spirituality (NCS) is located within St. Norbert Abbey, home of the Norbertine Community at 1016 N. Broadway, De Pere, WI 54115. Situated upon 160 acres of natural and landscaped beauty, this serene setting invites contemplation. This sacred place offers guests the opportunity to retreat, attend programming, receive spiritual direction, or simply embrace a place to pray and reflect.

The NCS fully reopened in July 2023 after undergoing extensive renovations that began in May 2022. Since the NCS first opened in the late 1970s, these are the first significant renovations that have taken place.

As part of the upgrades, 30 retreat guest rooms – available for both overnight or day stays – were refurbished and now feature private bathrooms, air conditioning and new furniture. Those guest rooms include both single- and double-occupancy rooms and ADA-accessible rooms. Also refreshed were large and small meeting rooms, spiritual direction rooms, lounge spaces and prayer areas.

The NCS, one of only a few retreat facilities in all of northeast Wisconsin, welcomes thousands of guests each year. Private rooms, home-cooked meals, a beautiful campus to explore, and spacious meeting rooms make our retreat center perfect for all your needs.
