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 laypeople who staff the retreat center aim to be “people for people,” providing for others a place where tranquility and peace abound. Over 1,000 people 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.

An Important Message Regarding COVID – 19

We continue to monitor the on-going situation with the Coronavirus (Covid-19) in Connecticut and nationwide, paying close attention to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the State of Connecticut. The health and well-being of our entire community, retreatants, staff, retreat team and volunteers is very important to us.

OLC will suspend its schedule of weekend retreats and programs until further notice. We will communicate with participants regarding re-scheduling retreats and programs.

Our office will be closed until further notice. We will continue to update you as circumstances change and we gain more clarity going forward.

If you are ill, feel ill or have flu-like symptoms, it is best for you to stay at home in these circumstances.

Let us all pray for a quick end to this illness and healing for any people in the world suffering with it.

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

You shall know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves and make you come up out of them, my people!
I will put my spirit in you that you may come to life, and I will settle you in your land. Then you shall know that I am the LORD. I have spoken; I will do it.
