We Are


We invite you to visit and experience Garden Grove Retreat. You will enjoy the peace and serenity of Garden Grove Retreat with availability for your group, corporate retreat, wellness, and health retreats, wedding, family reunion, or religious retreat. 

The historic building that is now Garden Grove Retreat first served as a hospital known across the nation for successfully treating ailments. Catherine Bonifas purchased the building and surrounding forty acres, and in 1947 gifted the property to the Catholic Diocese of Marquette which then operated it as a Catholic retreat center. 

Now, the doors of the former Marygrove Retreat Center are open to tourists, retreats, weddings, family reunions, spiritual renewal, and more.
