About La Casa de Maria and the Center of Spiritual Renewal

Located on 26 acres along the banks of the San Ysidro Creek, La Casa is nestled between mountain and ocean. The Center for Spiritual Renewal was founded in 1955 by the then Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary for women entering the sisterhood. Today the center continues its legacy of commitment to spiritual growth as a retreat center, open to all faiths and disciplines, focused on providing a safe, peaceful and naturally beautiful environment dedicated to helping people reconnect and recharge physically, emotionally and spiritually.
