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.

My daughter,

It is in your open heart, you must invite the poor in spirit, for their hunger is great as they seek closeness to God. Do not allow pride to draw you from the battle but receive My Son as often as possible for it is by His strength and His alone that evil will lose its power. There is much yet to do. Time spent away from My Son and

His mission for your life is wasted. Be firm, My daughter, for what is and will be revealed to you will bring pain as well as joy.

This is a time of testing. You are well advised to stay close to your spiritual director for the years have brought him much wisdom. Do not fear to proclaim Our messages for through the gentle truth of Our words and your tears of compassion many hearts will be softened.

Rest in Our Peace!
