To prepare a child for the future is important.
To prepare a child for eternal life, that's essential.

The Heart of Jesus Retreat Center is a place where God and His children can meet one another in silence and sharing, prayer and play, learning and laughter. Here children, teens, adults and families can come to recognize and understand their dignity as children of God, and realized that God is not someone out there, God is Someone with us.

Enter the Heart of Jesus

This day facility with peaceful, Mission-like surroundings include a beautiful and spacious chapel, conference rooms for 10 to 250, recreation area with basketball and volleyball courts, indoor/outdoor dining, kitchens, gift shop and parking. The Heart of Jesus Retreat Center is a day facility with no overnight accommodations.
