COVID-19 Guidelines for Summer IDRs

As Bellarmine is located in the Chicago Archdiocese and Cook County, we have been following their COVID-19 guidelines. At this time we do not know what the guidelines will be for the summer of 2022.  
It may be that mask mandates and/or vaccination requirements are still in place or may be removed. As we get closer to our IDRs this summer, we will let you know about any changes to the guidelines. 
Please join us in praying for the end of the pandemic and the health and well-being of all. 
How will I know if your COVID guidelines change? 

Please provide your most often checked email address and phone number so that we can keep you informed of any changes that may occur. In the meantime, we are asking about vaccination status and socially distancing needs to prepare the appropriate amount of spacing for each retreat group. 

Additional COVID-19 Precautions

We have Filter Queen Defenders portable air purifiers throughout the retreat house (filters 99.99% of particles down to 0.1 micron, 3x better-than-HEPA filtration, ozone free, hospital approved).

We open windows to ensure both filtration and ventilation in our common area rooms and our dining room is set up for social distancing.

After Your Retreat:

  • Should you be diagnosed with COVID-19 within 10 days of your Bellarmine retreat, please promptly inform us so that we may notify your fellow retreatants of their possible exposure.

  • If any guest or employee contracts COVID-19, Bellarmine Jesuit Retreat House will promptly inform retreatants who were exposed.

Contribution/Donation Information

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