Find Peace & Renewal Here
Visit Miramar for the day to soak in some of the holy, healing energy here, or stay for a week and find yourself powerfully renewed. Religious and lay spiritual directors are available, and, while Miramar is a Catholic retreat center, Catholicism is in no way a prerequisite for joining us.
The Provincial joins Fr. Mark and Miramar’s other SVDs and staff, in thanking all those who made our 2020 Fundraising Campaign such an amazing success! The generosity of all those who participated encourages us to continue our Mission to our ever-expanding community. Blessings abound! Peace to all!
Join us for Morning Mass and the Rosary
Daily Mass Monday through Friday at 7:30am in the Outdoor Chapel (weather permitting). Rosary is on Wednesdays at 11:30am in the Outdoor Chapel. All are welcome! Mass Intentions are available upon request. Please contact us for more information or to schedule a Mass.
Today more than 6,000 Divine Word Missionaries in more than 80 countries bring humanitarian services and the Word of God to those in need. In a culturally, socially and religiously divided world Divine Word Missionaries are dedicated to encouraging all people to open their hearts. We, at Miramar Retreat Center, mirror the Society’s service to all people in all places, valuing life and diversity.
I am so happy to have found a new source for retreats in Miramar and look forward to attending again in the future.
The house and grounds are very serene. Love the additions of outdoor Chapel and Rosary Path.
I’ve been coming here for a very long time. After school closes I yearn for quiet and time alone. Miramar provides a perfect atmosphere for ‘vacation’ with God. Also, wonderful directors to help me on the ‘pilgrimages'.

Thank you so much for all the hospitality during the past week at Miramar Retreat Center. We really had a great time!! I will certainly recommend the retreat house for next year’s retreat.

Everyone respected the silence. House was wonderful, as are the grounds.
Stimulating in an easy-going kind of way. Very reflective.
Br. Paul R. Demers, S.C., D.Min
Every staff member was over the top in kindness and helpfulness.
Keep on being who you are in the beautiful charism of the Divine Word.
