Come to St. Benedict Center for a time of retreat and get the first night plus breakfast for free, if you can stay for at least an additional night!  This offer is for those who have never spent a night at the Center.  Come by yourself or with a friend!

The Solo Project (scroll down to the bottom of the Programs & Retreats page) was made possible by a generous donation to St. Benedict Center.  The donor’s first time by himself on retreat was life-changing for him.  He wants as many people as possible to experience St. Benedict Center.






On July 14 – 15, 2017, Sharon Doran, M.A., M.A., the teaching director of Seeking Truth Catholic Bible Study, Omaha, will speak at St. Benedict Center, four miles north of Schuyler, on the topic of Delving Deeper Into Sacred Scripture.

Pope St. Gregory once said, “Holy Scripture is a stream in which the elephant may swim and the lamb may wade.”  Whether you are an elephant who wants to dive deep or a lamb who wants to initially get its’ feet wet, this summer time refreshment in God’s Word is for you.  Join Sharon Doran for a mini Biblical School.  There will be time to be immersed in God’s Word with teaching, discussion and personal prayer all in a relaxed retreat setting.  Dive deeper into Sacred Scripture and into God’s Love for you with this mid-summer retreat.

An experienced Bible Study teacher for over a decade, Sharon Doran has a passion for Scripture that will motivate and challenge you to immerse yourself in God’s Word and apply His message to your everyday life. She has a Masters of Arts degree in Education and has taught at both the high school and university levels. She holds a second Master’s Degree in Pastoral Theology with an emphasis in Sacred Scripture from the Augustine Institute in Denver, Colorado. She is frequently invited to speak at church events, city-wide venues, regional seminars and conferences.  Sharon is married to Dr. Stephen Doran and is the mother of five sons. She has endured several cancer surgeries for more than a decade but the blessing has been a deeper walk with Him and urgency to share the gospel.

The Doran family attends St. Margaret Mary’s parish. Sharon was invited by the Archdiocese of Omaha’s Adult Faith Formation Office to start a new Catholic Bible Study for men and women in the Omaha area.
The program begins on Friday, 7:30 p.m. and closes on Saturday with a Mass at 4:00 p.m. Sign up at or call St. Benedict Center at 402-352-8819 for more information.
