Set in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles near Griffith Park, the House of Prayer offers priests a respite from daily ministerial activity. The blending of Spanish architectural design and landscaping provides a setting of quiet and simple beauty suitable to its purpose: fostering a priest’s prayer life, inner freedom, rest and reflection.
The central focus of the House of Prayer are the four chapels. One chapel is located in the main building and is used for group prayer and Eucharistic Celebration. Next door is a beautiful adoration chapel. In the original building, which is set aside for silent retreats, there is an additional adoration chapel. Upstairs in our newly renovated Villa San Giusseppe is our fourth chapel.
The rooms allow our priests to choose to be silent or with a group. This allows opportunity for conversation and fellowship. The lunch and evening dinners are prepared by our chef.
Any priest or priest support group is welcome. The House of Prayer is funded by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. The suggested stipend for each retreat may vary.
