& GROUP RENTALS
Due to current events, many parishes are unable to offer their usual Confirmation programming. To make sure your Candidates are well-formed in the faith, Santiago Retreat Center is developing a unique program to supplement parish confirmation retreats.
We offer frequent Confirmation weekend retreats in the great outdoors, compliant with social spacing rules and health directives. Our program will ensure that the Candidates meet God where they are, with hands-on training in the faith.
We have a team of priests, ready to teach and nurture, including our Chaplain, Fr. Glenn Baaten, officially assigned to the Santiago Retreat Center by His Excellency Kevin Vann, Bishop of Orange. Fr. Glenn is an evangelical convert from Protestantism enrolled in the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, and parochial administrator of Our Lady of Grace in Covina.

Santiago Retreat Center is a Catholic Christian Retreat Center. We provide a beautiful rustic venue to hold your next retreat or event that is comfortable and accommodating for both small and large groups. We have a variety of activities including a large swimming pool, Whiffle Ball field, hiking trails, low ropes, game room, as well as chapels, picnic areas, indoor/outdoor meeting spaces, and more.
Located in the foothills of the Santa Ana Mountains, just 17 miles from heart of Orange County, the newly consecrated Christ Cathedral. Situated on 500 acres of wilderness setting, our facility includes 500 beds with four distinct retreat areas, each with its own chapel, meeting rooms, recreational space and dormitories.
The vision for Santiago Retreat Center is as simple as it is necessary, to assist you in the renewal of parish life through retreats, camps and events which meet the family in each stage of development and walk with them to where Christ is calling them to be.
We place a special emphasis on Confirmation preparation, but our summer camps and Catholic school science camps are particularly helpful to our families throughout the southland.
