Saint Kateri Chapel
Resting at the heart of our ministry is the Eucharist - the source and summit of our faith - and resting at the heart of our facility is the Saint Kateri Chapel. Dedicated by Archbishop Joseph Naumann on March 19, 2011, this magnificent sacred space has welcomed thousands since that date. Whether it has been used for private prayer, adoration, or the Holy Mass - this beautiful chapel has been a place of joy and worship for our summer campers and year-round retreatants.
Sitting atop the Tequa Valley our Main Lodge simply cannot be beat. With views overlooking our tranquil lakes and lush oak forests, the Main Lodge offers an ideal environment for all varieties of retreat and user groups. With a climate controled space to accomodate over 300, high quality audio visual equipment, and a plethra of other benefits it is easy to see why the Main Lodge has been a favorite of retreatants for years.
Overlooking the rolling hills west of the Tequa Valley and the two lakes of Prairie Star Ranch, our Apostles Lodge serves as our more formal retreat space. Remodeled in 2011, the main meeting room is surrounded by icons of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus Christ as well as images of the Archbishops of Kansas City, calling to mind the Church's teaching of Apostolic Succession. With room to comfortably seat 100, food storage and preparation areas, as well as breakout rooms - the Apostles Lodge offers user groups tremendous options.
