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


Message of June 4th, 2010

Our Lady Speaks

The following message was received by Pat at the conclusion of the Friday night rosary at Mary’s Knoll. It is to be noted that this is the first 2010 public message received here at the Shrine  from Our Lady to date. She also made it known that we must make a greater attempt to get a better understanding of the two earlier *2010 messages ( 1-15 & 4-16-10 ) given by Her Son.


My Dear Children, 

I have taken this time tonight to be with you … to speak with you … and to tell you … that you must pray … and pray for the virtue of humility. 

My children it is thru this special virtue … that you will find peace, serenity and hope in these times which shall cease … for you, and your families, your country and this world. Learn from My Son … learn from your Mother … the gentleness of such a love … that calls you to be simple, loving and forgiving.  

There is so much that now disturbers your peace … that causes anxiety in so many hearts. It is you … My Children of prayer … that I call to a deeper understanding … a deeper relationship with My Son. In Him you will find a peace … a peace that will flow like a river … flowing into the hearts of so many of Our Children … refreshing them … with a purification that shall come. Thru God’s grace you shall persevere … and during this purification … I call upon you to walk without fear … to believe … to trust and to hope. For God’s mercy is everlasting. Pray My Children … pray ……
