The Columban chapel is available for visiting groups free of charge although a voluntary donation is appreciated. The chapel seats approximately 100 people and there are liturgical items available in both English and Spanish to accommodate any sacramental celebration.
The Columban Fathers cannot provide a priest. Therefore, the facility is BYOP (Bring Your Own Priest).
For more information and to check availability, please contact us using the address, phone and email below. Tours are available by appointment between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. (M-F).Retreat Center Coordinator
