 QUIET DAY OF PERSONAL PRAYER

Call (781-585-2460) to make arrangements – you’re welcome almost any day!
Cost: $26 – lunch included

Many have discovered what a special place Miramar is, however their schedules don’t permit them to return as often as their souls yearn to.  So, fit in personal time of retreat based on your schedule.  Many weekdays and weekend days are available for you to come to Miramar on your own and enjoy the sacred space, inside and outside.  You’re most welcome to call Mary-Fran, our Registrar, and ask about dates.
