Jesuit Retreat Center

My first time at JRCS was back in 1974 as a young man of 18.  It was quite a bit different back then, but there was still lots of history and beauty surrounding us.  Now, over 40 years later, I have the privilege to return twice a year in June and in August.  In June, I get to meet with people who have never been to JRCS, and in August, I visit with people who have been coming here since the mid-to-late 50’s.  The peaceful surroundings, good camaraderie, and great food keep them coming back each year.

Westminster Retreat to Stay Open Through 2014

 We have received good news! The Presbytery of San Francisco has asked UCCR to keep Westminster Retreat open through the end of 2014. The pending sale of the property fell through in mid October. 
We at UCCR are very happy to continue to offer this unique retreat setting in the SF East Bay Area. Very few retreats like this still exist…a historic mansion on private acreage. The retreat accommodates up to 50 people in two buildings, the Manor and the Carriage House Lodge.
