Remember that Jesus never made anyone suffer; He went about doing good showing to all His mercy and His sweetness of heart.
Venerable Mother Clelia Merloni

Queen of Apostles Spiritual Life Center

Queen of Apostles Spiritual Life Center is a ministry of spiritual formation and a ministry of the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. As religious women of the Church, impelled by the love of the Heart of Christ, the Apostles staff the center, offering spiritual formation opportunities for individuals, groups, parishes, and families. 

Spiritual Renewal & Formation

We at the Queen of Apostles Spiritual Life Center are committed to serving all persons who seek to deepen their relationship with God, particularly through spiritual renewal in recollection, prayer, and quiet. Hospitality and caring service are the hallmarks of the our ministry.

Situated on the Mississippi river bluffs, our 18-acre campus is located 20 miles south of downtown St. Louis. The center offers a peaceful, country setting for groups and individuals seeking quiet time for rest and spiritual renewal.

Queen of Apostles Spiritual Life Center invites parishes and families to utilize our spacious rooms and beautiful grounds for in-service programs, celebrations, or professional development. We welcome individuals and groups to attend scheduled days of prayer and renewal or to create their own structure for days of renewal.
