Kordes: Group Accomodations
The Sisters of St. Benedict of Ferdinand are so serious about offering warm and welcoming hospitality that it is one of their core principles. They back it up with the resounding statement that every guest of theirs is to be received and welcomed as Christ.
Simply put, St. Benedict allowed no excuses on the matter, and Benedictines have followed his guide faithfully and joyfully for more than 1,500 years.
Visitors tell us that Kordes Center, the sisters’ guest facility on the grounds of Monastery Immaculate Conception, is also different from other lodging in a very special way—it enables them to feel God’s presence. Whatever your faith, and whatever your needs, we have a place for you.
Our grounds offer a historic monastery, a grotto, lake, outdoor grass labyrinth, trailed wooded areas, and a peaceful, serene atmosphere that provides a one-of-a-kind experience.
Comfortable accommodations. Reasonable rates. Safety. Benedictine hospitality. And sacred grounds.
We do all we can to meet your needs while you are here with us. We leave the rest to God.
