The daily grind of the corporate world can leave its employees frazzled and exhausted. This may result in fatigue and a decreased energy to produce fresh ideas and increase productivity. Why not renew and revive your human assets by giving them the ultimate perk—a relaxing stay at the Pallottine Renewal Center?
Located on 83 acres of countryside in a northern suburb of St. Louis County, Pallottine offers many amenities for companies looking for an opportunity to not only rejuvenate their employees, but to encourage innovative discussions in a safe, relaxing environment. With an indoor heated pool, full-sized gym, private or double rooms, several conference rooms and a chapel in the round, Pallottine is a respite for those looking for peaceful relaxation and reflection.
Pallotine Renewal Center is a non-profit faith-driven facility. It began in 1968 as a ministry of the Pallottine Missionary Sisters, an order of Roman Catholic religious sisters founded by St. Vincent Pallotti, to serve as a novitiate and formation house for incoming sisters and residence for the retired sisters. Because the need for housing diminished over the years, the center evolved into a retreat where all people could come to grow in faith and sense of mission.
If you’ve never organized or even attended a corporate retreat, not to worry! Pallottine Renewal Center has everything you need to host small or large groups, for one day or several days. They can accommodate up to 96 people staying overnight at their facility, with each private or semi-private room having their own temperature controls. All meals are prepared by their kitchen staff and served in the spacious dining room. Housekeeping staff provides all linens, towels and extra pillows and blankets.
All amenities are available for your business needs, including:
- Multiple meeting spaces, to include one large and several smaller conference rooms, with more private breakout rooms for more individual discussions
- Audio-visual equipment, including projectors, podiums, microphones, DVD/CD players, and more to facilitate presentations
- Computer hookups
- WiFi available throughout the building
- Business center housing computers, fax machine, printers and office supplies
For those wanting to balance their day with physical exercise, Pallottine provides fitness classes and a fitness center in their gymnasium, along with an indoor pool. If you love nature, take a walk to enjoy the lovely gardens, outdoor labyrinth or other peaceful areas on the 80+ acres. Resting or socializing is possible on their outdoor patio around the fire pit or around the fireplace in the solarium. And for those who want a spiritual or religious respite, the chapel in-the-round is always available for prayer, meditation or reflection.
Besides hosting corporate retreats, Pallottine Renewal Center also sponsors special events that are open to the public. For example, in 2017, they held a Holiday Market in December, a one-day shopping experience where vendors offered their products for purchase. They also hold concerts where different artists perform, and staycations where they give tours of local sites.
