Current COVID Guidelines

Bellarmine is praying for you, and for an end of COVID-19.  Our guidelines follow the best practices of the Archdiocese of Chicago and State of Illinois and have now been updated to reflect their latest guidelines and the decreased number of cases. 

As of June 12, 2021 masks and social distancing are not required for fully vaccinated persons.  Fully vaccinated is defined as having received two shots of the vaccine in a 2-dose series (Pfizer or Moderna) and the last shot was 2 weeks ago; or one shot of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, and the shot was 2 weeks ago.

For those that are not vaccinated we currently require:

  • Social distancing of six feet between retreatants
  • Wearing masks when in common areas including the chapel and hallways
  • People who are fully vaccinated may also choose to wear a face mask and may request social distancing. 

When registering please provide your most often checked email address and phone number so that we can keep you informed.

Our registration form has a limit to the number of characters in each question. When you get to the question asking about your vaccination status, please refer to this full explanation:

Please let us know which one of the two groups listed below best describes you:

1. I have been fully vaccinated (see above for definition) or will be by the start of the retreat/program, and I no longer require social distancing when in the chapels or when having meals in the Dining Room.
2. Either I am not fully vaccinated, or I have been vaccinated but request social distancing when in the chapels or when having meals in the Dining Room.

Contribution/Donation Information

Retreat House expenses are covered by contributions from our retreatants and generous gifts from many of our benefactors. Limited financial resources should not prevent anyone from making a retreat.

Your deposit is applied toward the suggested contribution for each retreat. In the event of a cancellation 3 or more days before the retreat begins, you may move your deposit to another retreat within the same season (September to May), request a refund, or donate your deposit as a tax-deductible gift to Bellarmine. The deposit may be moved only once per retreat season.

Please call the office (847-381-1261) if you require flexible funding or seek a scholarship.
