Holy Spirit Retreat Center

501 Century Drive South
Laredo, TX78046
Tel: (956) 242-6223

 

Built in 1974,  the Holy Spirit Retreat Center was originally an Ursuline Convent.  In 1985, the facilities were converted into a retreat house by the Diocese of Corpus Christi.  Finally, in 1996, it became the guesthouse to the Priory of the Congregation of Saint John.

 

Our Mission
To be an oasis of light and love for all those who wish to come for rest and renewal in the Christian life.

We welcome and minister to...

  • Persons who come for private retreats (spiritual direction is available).
  • Persons who attend seminars and retreats preached by the brothers of Saint John.
  • Groups seeking a peaceful environment to conduct retreats.


"The Diocese of Laredo is blessed by the presence of the Holy Spirit Retreat Center. It is a unique and special place for prayer and recollection, for one's spiritual growth in the faith."
-Most Revered Bishop James A. Tamayo, Bishop of Laredo, TX
