Designed as a silent retreat facility, the Pelican House is a unique part of the Diocese of East Carolina. Pelican House is an apt name for the beautiful residential building, as flocks of these magnificent birds fly past the house skimming the ocean waters. The pelican is also an ancient Christian symbol for Christ.
The Pelican House is used for a variety of retreats. Trinity Center provides space for guided spiritual retreats, silent retreats, and opportunities for quiet personal time throughout the year.
Groups of up to 12 people may reserve the Pelican House for small group retreats that are meditative or spiritual in nature. Please contact our reservations staff for more information about small group retreats.
