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 Garden of Grace Dedication

The Garden of Grace Mass and Dedication on September 10th was a beautiful summer day and a beautiful tribute to our loved ones!

Thank you to all that contributed and helped with the event!!

Join us for Morning Mass and the Rosary

Daily Mass Monday through Friday at 7:30am in the Chapel. Rosary is on Wednesdays at 11:30am in the Chapel or the Outdoor Chapel (weather permitting). All are welcome! Mass Intentions are available upon request. Please contact us for more information or to schedule a Mass.

Our Purpose

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’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'.
