Tucked in the rolling hills of Connecticut, Villa Maria Guadalupe Retreat Center is a sanctuary of prayer.

A place of renewal, hope and mercy under the protection of the Blessed Mother, Villa Maria Guadalupe promises to play a unique and integral role as the spiritual foundation of the Culture of Life.

Drawing from the liturgy and teachings of the Catholic Church, the retreats we offer are centered on the Eucharist.  The rest, quiet, and prayer at Villa Maria Guadalupe will strengthen retreatants, deepen their spiritual lives, and help them to be “people of life and for life” more fully.

A note of thanks

Villa Maria Guadalupe is owned and generously supported by the Knights of Columbus, who are committed to building a culture of life and family.

For me, Villa Maria is a holy oasis in a world of darkness that stokes the fire of faith.

...a true harbor for souls...

I found roses in winter here at your house of prayer.

A dump truck of grace is an understatement! God has given me my new heart and lifted the burdens. I see that Jesus holds my heart in His hands so very tenderly and He loves me unconditionally.
