About the event

Center for Spiritual Development and Mission San Luis Rey are partnering to create a women’s spiritual retreat. The retreat will be held at Mission San Luis Rey in Oceanside while staff from the Center for Spiritual Development will serve as spiritual directors.

All women are welcome! Vowed religious and lay women who feel called to be in the silence with God are invited to join us for 8 days of quiet and daily spiritual direction. Fr. Michael Guinan, OFM, will preside at daily Mass and music will be provided by Br. Rufino Zaragosa, OFM. Taizé prayer, a reconciliation service, and a healing service are optional activities during the week. The grounds include peaceful walking paths, a swimming pool, a beautiful rose garden, St. Clare Chapel, Stations of the Cross, a labyrinth, and the beautiful sounds of nature.

Who should come?

  • Religious and lay women who desire to deepen their faith.
  • Women longing for silence and solitude to rest in the arms of God.
  • Women who desire spiritual direction.
  • Women who are touched by the beauty of creation and the Creator.
