Welcome to the events’ website of Mater Dolorosa Passionist Retreat Center.  Here, we hope you will discover and begin to explore this sacred place in Sierra Madre, California.  Since 1924, the Passionists and our supporters have sponsored retreats, days of prayer and other spiritual programs to enable all those who are seeking a deeper relationship with God to experience His presence in the peace, beauty and wonder in this remarkable place.

We hope you will join us for a weekend retreat, any of our annual events, or consider joining us for Tuesday morning mass in the Chapel. As you come to know this beautiful and sacred retreat center, we are confident that you will find a renewed experience of God and a deep sense of His love and presence in your life.  Come and see, rest and be renewed.

Dr. Michael Cunningham, OFS
