Welcome to Our Lady of Calvary Retreat Center

Located on twelve pastoral acres overlooking the Farmington Valley, Our Lady of Calvary Retreat Center  is a warm and welcoming spiritual space for people of all faiths and ages. The Sisters of the Cross and Passion and lay people who staff the retreat center aim to be “people for people,” providing for others a place where tranquility and peace abound. Over 1,000 women journey to Our Lady of Calvary each year to attend retreats and day/evening programs, and many groups and churches rent out our space for meetings, private retreats, and social events.

Come for a weekend, a day, an evening or an hour. At OLC, the natural beauty of the grounds and the peaceful atmosphere of the retreat center can provide a much-needed break from your daily routine. It offers the quiet solitude you may need to hear God’s word and message with new clarity. A retreat at OLC is an opportunity to step aside from everyday concerns to relax and care for your soul.

There's a New Spirit at OLC! Here's what's happening.
