Welcome to Sacred Ground
a place to explore your story!

What we do :

Our Vision
Sacred Ground Center for Spirituality is an ecumenical organization that works for the transformation of the world. We seek to awaken and deepen faith in all communities. Sacred Ground provides a safe, nurturing environment in which people of all faiths can explore their own spiritual path.

Our History
The Sacred Ground Center for Spirituality was founded in 1996 by spiritual directors trained at the Wayzata Cenacle Retreat House. Sacred Ground opened as an independent and ecumenical organization in June 1997, continuing the Cenacle charism of "awakeningand deepening faith for and with the people of our time." When the Wayzata Cenacle closed its doors in the Spring of 1998, Sacred Ground moved to Carondelet Center.


Carondelet Center

The beginning of wisdom is found in doubting; by doubting we come to the question, and by seeking we may come upon the truth.
- Pierre Abelard (1079-1142) French scholastic philosopher, theologian.
