Our annual 8-Day Silent, Guided Directed Retreat, is one of the most popular retreats at our Center. It is a silent retreat based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. The schedule includes a Scripture-based conference each morning, individual direction (a daily meeting with a retreat director), celebration of daily Eucharist, optional evening prayer activities and a mid-week Reconciliation service.

From time to time we
all feel the need for guidance, compassionate listening or help with discernment. A spiritual director is a companion on the journey who enables you to tune in to your deeper self and recognize the still, small voice of God within. Spiritual direction is available for individuals or couples on an on-going basis, meeting about once a month. We have several directors available.
For information on spiritual direction contact
Wendy by phone or by email.
“Come away… and rest a while” (Mk.6:31). One day or a few days of refreshment and renewal reinvigorates us, body, mind and spirit, so we can return to our lives with a new sense of God’s presence to focus and ground us. Individual spiritual direction is available to enhance your private retreat experience. For information on private retreats contact Sydne (310) 377-4867 ext 258 or by email.
