TOUR OF SHALOM FACILITIES





Shalom Spirituality Center lies nestled among the rolling hills of Dubuque, Iowa. It occupies a building of natural and historic beauty, owned and operated by the Sisters of St. Francis.

Shalom was founded in 1989. Over 8,000 people annually attend the various programs sponsored by Shalom and by numerous religious, business, civic and quilting groups that use our facility.

The Shalom facility has three large conference rooms, small parlors, a library, a small prayer Chapel, and a large Chapel/Conference room area that can seat 200 people. These rooms are air-conditioned. Arrangements can be made to use a wide variety of modern AV equipment for presentations and free Wi-Fi high-speed internet access is also available.

The bright, spacious dining room is the scene of many life-giving events and comfortably seats 90 to 100 people. Guests marvel at the delicious and nutritious home-cooked meals.

Shalom has fifty-five comfortably furnished bedrooms for overnight guests. Most are single rooms, although some are furnished for double occupancy.

Shalom’s gift shop is filled with current spiritual books and religious cards and various articles that enable retreatants to nourish their own lives and to purchase gifts for others.

The grounds surrounding Shalom are peaceful and inviting. An outdoor deck to the north overlooks a natural prairie and another deck on the south side provides space to reflect in quiet wonder as the seasons unfold their beauty.

Safe and peaceful walking space in all directions is an asset greatly appreciated by all who come to Shalom.

A flower and herb garden with a gentle flowing fountain gives retreatants a place to meditate or simply sit and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature.

Shalom’s Chapel is the most beautiful and cherished space in Shalom’s facility. The Chapel provides a space for quiet meditation, prayer, and liturgical celebrations. The chapel's stained glass windows date from the turn of the century. Made in Munich, Germany, they are among the finest stained glass anywhere in the world.
