Miramar Retreat Center is a group of men and women collaborating in service and celebration of all races and cultures by calling all people to discipleship and transformation, responding prophetically to the signs of the times.
Miramar Retreat Center is a spiritual retreat house of the Catholic tradition but open to God-seekers of all faiths who want to go deeper with their relationship to God, for those seeking a simpler life-style, for those wanting to take time to savor and reverence God’s creation and recover silence in their everyday life. Providing an atmosphere of beauty, prayer and spiritual companionship, it opens its doors to those who seek the same.
Miramar Retreat Center is run under the auspices of the Society of the Divine Word. It is directed by a group of women and men collaborating in service and celebration with all races and cultures, by:
• Hearing and proclaiming the Word of God
• Calling all people to discipleship through continuing conversion
• Responding prophetically to the signs of the times
