"Be who you are, and be that well. So that you may bring honor to the Master Craftsman whose handiwork you are." 

St Francis de Sales


About us

The St Jane House is an urban retreat center and house of hospitality sponsored by the Visitation Monastery of Minneapolis. We whole-heartedly welcome people of every religious tradition as well as no particular tradition, and people with every kind of difference, to come and connect here. To share stories, pray, talk about things that matter, and in the process come to a deeper experience and appreciation of our common humanity. 

The St Jane House offers:

❖ Welcome and hospitality to all who come to our door

❖ Guest Rooms for overnight visitors

❖ A place for prayer, discernment and spiritual renewal

❖ Opportunities for education and urban immersion

❖ Weekly Centering Prayer Group 

❖ Individual, group, and staff retreats

​❖ Overnight retreats for healing and support groups

❖ Community events, dinners and other gatherings 

The St Jane House is also the home base of From Death to Life, a faith-based organization founded by Mary Johnson-Roy to provide support and healing for families impacted by homicide. Mary went home to God on March 27, 2024. Listen to her powerful story of forgiveness in this inspiring 8-minute StoryCorps video recorded at the St Jane House over the course of 12 years.


The St Jane House is sponsored by the Visitation Monastery of Minneapolis – a community of Catholic nuns who have been a loving, peaceful, prayerful presence in our northside community for over 34 years. Their monastery is located just two blocks away, and visitors to the St Jane House are wholeheartedly welcomed to pray with them. As a monastic religious community they chant the Liturgy of the Hours daily and celebrate the Eucharist regularly. View their prayer schedule and join them as you are able.

Live + Jesus!
