Welcome, and thanks for visiting our site!

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 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.

You’ll find as you peruse our site that not all retreats have detailed descriptions.  Many past retreatants have felt glad, after their retreats, that there was some mystery laden in what awaited them.  But still, don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions!
