Our Mission

The mission of Santiago Retreat Center is to provide the opportunity for guests attending retreats, conferences and events, as well as employees, volunteers, and benefactors to fulfill their highest calling and greatest happiness in life, which is to get close to God, and in turn, reach out to others in their own environments with God’s loving care and concern.

Just completed a retreat with St Mary in Fullerton. The experience and facilities were more than I had hoped for.

We had a very good experience at the Santiago Retreat Center. Staff were exceptional and catered to all of our needs. Clean, inexpensive and exactly what we were looking for our Leader Retreat.

Perfect place for a peaceful encounter with Jesus in a rowdy world.

Beautiful place!!! The staff is very nice also!!
