    About Us

    Dunrovin Christian Brothers Retreat Center (known in business as “Dunrovin”) opened in 1964 as a retreat facility for high school boys of the De La Salle Christian Brothers Schools. The first retreat took place on Ash Wednesday, February 12, 1964. In 1970, Dunrovin Retreat Center opened its doors to external groups, inviting other schools, parishes, and nonprofits to rent the facility and experience its Lasallian-inspired hospitality. Today, Dunrovin’s dedicated staff continues to offer a Christ-like welcome for the diverse peoples who come from all over. Located within the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, guests come for Dunrovin’s beautiful 50-acre wilderness and leave refreshed by God’s peace. While our charism is to welcome all to this beautiful place, the core of our mission is to offer, in the Lasallian tradition, an encounter with Christ and spiritual growth, particularly to financially poor and socially marginalized youth. To that end, Dunrovin offers faith-based leadership formation programming free of charge to inner-city youth who come to us from throughout the Twin Cities and select schools of Chicago, IL. Financial donations and rental income make it possible to offer LEAD (Leadership Experience At Dunrovin) at no cost to these underserved youth.
