“…silence is above all the positive attitude of someone who prepares to welcome God by listening.”
– Cardinal Robert Sarah
Surrounded by our rustic desert environment, visitors often remark how it is easy to understand why the Lord often went to the desert and to the mountains to pray to His Heavenly Father! Our Lady of Solitude Chapel provides a simple place a solitude and silence for all those seeking an encounter with Christ in the desert.
Since opening our doors in 2010, we’ve been privileged to welcome priests, deacons, religious, as well as many laity (both young and old) for retreat days here at Our Lady of Solitude. In the Fall and Winter months, parishes and schools often bring groups of parishioners or students out to spend the day in fellowship and prayer with Our Eucharistic Lord at Our Lady of Solitude Chapel. Throughout the year, individuals escape from the busyness of daily life, and spend a quiet day of prayer and recollection in this ideal setting.
Please visit Desert Day of Prayer Page (for groups or individuals) or Priest Retreat Page (for Clergy, Seminarians and Religious) to learn more about how you can “Come away by yourself and rest for awhile…” at Our Lady of Solitude.
