***An important message regarding meetings and retreats as affected by Covid-19 precautions.

Dear Mary & Joseph Retreat Center Community Members:

We want to inform you that Mary & Joseph Retreat Center staff and governing board members continue to closely monitor recommendations from the CDC as well as applicable Federal, State, and Los Angeles authorities about the coronavirus situation. Please know that MJRC complied with requirements and experienced no ill effects.

In the interest of the health and safety of our retreat guests and employees in the current conditions, based on guidelines from government and health organizations, group retreats or gatherings will not meet at Mary & Joseph Retreat Center through April 19, 2020. Further, we have postponed or cancelled our own sponsored retreats and events through April 19, 2020. Over the coming weeks, we will reevaluate the situation, keeping an eye on latest developments, before we again welcome organized groups to our retreat facilities or resume our own programs.

Like most everyone, we have the potential of being hit very hard by the impact of the coronavirus. We are funded mostly by income from programs and services, as well as local donations, for which we are greatly appreciative. To date, most March and April programming is being cancelled. While we are exploring other avenues of funding, we are doing our best to carefully steward our existing resources to keep our beautiful facilities and dedicated, hard-working staff intact. If you are able to donate to help us, please consider making a gift now.

Meanwhile, during this critical period, our outside grounds, including our labyrinth, remain open daily to individual members of the public who wish to take a walk and enjoy the serenity and natural beauty of the retreat center. We continue to promote a healthy environment and ask all who visit to follow commonly published safety guidelines.

Please know that we have your best interests at heart, and we look forward to welcoming you here soon.

With blessings,

The Board and Staff of Mary & Joseph Retreat Center
