La Purisima Retreat Center

La Purisima is named in honor of the Immaculate Conception (in Spanish, La Purisima Concepcion) - was incorporated in the Spring of 2000 to provide a "place apart" in an atmosphere of serenity and peace, where one can experience spiritual renewal and growth in the beautiful high desert of Southeast Arizona.

For the many groups and parishes of the Diocese of Tucson, as well as our other guests, La Purisima Center provides a "desert experience" of prayer and quiet reflection. We are particularly interested in providing retreat facilities for youth groups, but we welcome all groups with special needs.

For more information, please contact the Retreat Coordinator at (520) 240-5658 or or visiting

Hija Mía,


Toma Mi mano la cual He extendido hacia ti, puesto que la jornada que se acerca está larga y difícil y tú, hija Mía, tienes mucho que aprender. Muchos vendrán a apoyar tus esfuerzos. Sé paciente, Mi tierna hija, --- permite que tu amor continúe floreciendo y te harás más fuerte. Otros van a tomar de esa fuerza la cual Nosotros te hemos dado. Llénate con Nuestro amor porque Nosotros haremos que Nuestra presencia se sienta en este santo lugar.  Prepárate, pequeña, --- ora y prepárate. Acerca a ti a aquellos a quienes hemos confiado a tu cuidado para que ellos también vean y sientan la presencia de Su amor y paz.


No te demores, hija Mía. Continua obedeciendo a Nuestro llamado --- prepárate como se te ha instruido. ¡Paz, hija Mía!
