..Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” Mark 6:31 

Zechariah house

A Safe Haven

Zechariah House provides a safe haven to experience healing, mind, body, and spirit through prayer, resources, education and retreats.  Honoring and affirming each person’s unique and intrinsic value, we are authentic witnesses of companionship and hospitality modeled after the home of Zechariah and Elizabeth.


Elizabeth Ministry’s Zechariah House, a Retreat and Resource Center is located at the former St. Mary’s Rectory in Kaukauna, Wisconsin. Those who have fond memories of the Elizabeth Ministry Center located at the former St. Mary’s Convent in Kaukauna, will be happy to know that through a collaborative effort with the Kaukauna Catholic Parishes, we will continue to be able to use the facility for retreats and other events.

It houses rooms beneficial in hosting retreats, overnight guests for those visiting the Shrine of Our Lady of Champion, a Eucharistic Chapel and a local Elizabeth Ministry Childbearing Chapter. 

Eucharistic Chapel


Our Eucharistic Chapel is open for individual and communal prayer. Mass is offered twice a month

Franciscan Spirituality

Following Elizabeth Ministries Franciscan roots, Zechariah House of Healing takes on that charism as well. We are relying on the generosity of donors and volunteers help grow and serve those coming to our ministry. While some forms of spirituality focus on the divinity of Christ and the transcendence of God, we follow Franciscan spirituality that looks intently on the humanness of Jesus and embraces the power of redemptive suffering. Following the example of the many Franciscans who have taught us that God took flesh and became one of us not because of sin, but because of love, we seek to bring the healing love of Jesus to those we serve. Franciscan spirituality is a community experience. We believe that we learn from one another’s life journey. While some spiritual traditions are centered on unity and conformity, Franciscan spirituality acknowledges the charism given to each individual person by the Holy Spirit.
