Welcome, and thanks for checking us out! More lay people than ever are making time in their lives for retreats, and finding themselves deeply rewarded. While a few of our retreats are tailored for those who have taken religious vows, in general our retreats are open to the lay public. You can come for a day, soak in some of the holy, healing energy here, or come for a week and find yourself powerfully renewed. Religious (consecrated under vows) and lay spiritual directors or counselors are often available, and while Miramar is a Catholic retreat center, you don’t need to be Catholic to come. We ask that you register in advance for the retreat you choose. If you can’t fit one in with your commitments, call us and reserve a private day of prayer on your schedule. We’ll gladly serve you lunch, along with a generous helping of peace.
