What We Do

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to serve the needs of the Catholic Diocese of Las Cruces and the wider community by providing hospitality and spiritual refreshment in a peaceful contemplative atmosphere. The Retreat Center provides a place for:


Family Gatherings:

We have a beautiful meadow for outdoor receptions. The center has a full kitchen with dining room and great room. This indoor space can comfortably accommodate 50 guests for a meal or reception. Outdoor event using the meadow can accommodate up to 150 – 200 people.

Group Retreats:

San Patricio Retreat Center is a perfect place to host retreats for: College Students, Men and Women, Couples, Scouts, Artists and more. The setting in the Hondo Valley is quiet and beautiful. The retreat center surprises many people of New Mexico, with its lush green trees, and abundant flowering gardens. It’s also a great way to “beat the heat” of Southern New Mexico in the summer.

Individual Retreats:

Many people make individual retreats to de-stress and renew themselves. We have a private hermitage with kitchen or retreat rooms available. Other offerings include: a kitchen, library, gift shop, labyrinths and 11 acres of beauty. We also welcome individual artists who want to paint, photograph, make music or write. We have a gallery to exhibit artwork as well.

Business or Staff Meetings:

Why not have your meetings in the conference room at San Patricio? It’s so much better to be in an atmosphere of quiet and tranquility. It’s amazing how much can be accomplished without interruption. The room can accommodate 45-50 people comfortably. Arrangements for meals and snacks are also available.

R.V. Ministry & Service Opportunities:

Opportunities abound for those who would like a blended retreat (retreat & service). We discount stays for those willing to garden, paint and help out at the retreat center. We currently have room for two R.V. spaces, for those who would like to retreat at San Patricio Retreat or retreat and do some service work.
