Some Helpful Guidelines

Please do not eat or drink (except water) in the bedrooms.


Candles or incense are not permitted in any part of the Madonna Center.


The fireplaces in the Rio Grande and Monte Visa are not usable.  For the safety of our guests, please do not burn anything in the fireplaces. 


Please do not open or prop open doors for anyone who is not part of your group.  If someone comes to the door, let them ring the front doorbell, and our staff will decide if they should be admitted.


Please do not walk through St. Pius X campus when going to the Catholic Center from Madonna.


When entering the cafeteria, use the doors on the east side of the building.


When parking at the Catholic Center, please park in the west side parking lot, rather than the staff lot.


Checkout time is 10:00 a.m. unless other arrangements have been made.


We ask that you refrain from smoking.  If you would like to smoke, we thank you for doing so outside, away from the doors, using the trash containers available.
