We of the Community of St. John Baptist welcome you to spend time among us for retreat and solitude, as well as for worship and fellowship. Each year, thousands of people visit our wooded hilltop for retreats and workshops, spiritual direction, religious services, healing, and recreation. Besides our Convent and Retreat House, we also host Daytop New Jersey, where young people find new lives after battling addiction.
Our Community has now been here for over 100 years, so our buildings are over 100 years old. Our Sisters, however, bring new energy and commitment, as we experience a renewed call to reach out to God's people. Today, our outreach includes persons who are young and old, rich and poor, active and contemplative.
In order to follow our call in this new century, we need the help of those who share our vision. You can make a difference by joining us in our mission, both to spiritual seekers and to people in need.
We continue our work in faith that our income will be adequate to sustain our life and ministry. Help us to make this possible!

Can you give us a lift?
CLICK HERE to donate any amount through GoFundMe to help replace our Convent elevator
Our Convent elevator, which is a huge part of our ministry of hospitality and welcome, has finally breathed its last after serving us since 1960. Since we don't have any miracles left to resurrect it, we're asking the public to help us purchase a new elevator to provide continuing ministry to the hundreds of guests who visit CSJB each year for prayer, rest and retreat.
The elevator also provides our only access for handicapped visitors and overnight guests, since our restrooms are not on the first floor and our overnight guest rooms are all on the 3rd and 4th floor.
