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


Our Lady of Tihaljina statue came from Italy, on August 12, 2012. The statues were to be replicas of the statue of Mary found in Tihaljina, a small town not far from Medjugorje,
at the church of Fr. Jozo, the former pastor of St. James Church in Medjugorje.  Fr. Jozo had been a great defender of the visionaries, the six children Mary had chosen to appear to each day.
