Loretto Spirituality Center is conveniently located southwest of Denver, and offers accommodations for one-day or overnight retreats, days of reflection, workshops, meetings and conferences.
Its location allows for a panoramic view of the mountains on the west, and of Lake Marston on the south. The surrounding grounds provide natural beauty and opportunity for a peaceful stroll on a lovely walkway or restful time on benches along the way.
Loretto Spirituality Center is ideal for private retreats for individuals who are seeking a place to relax, reflect, to pray and to spend some time alone. Spiritual direction is available for a modest fee when pre-arranged.
