San Damiano Retreat is in Contra Costa County and is now in the Purple Tier of Covid restrictions.   We may now hold outdoor social gatherings of fewer than 25 people from three or fewer households.  We may now also offer private retreats with caveats.  The state urges Californians to avoid non-essential travel more than 120 miles from home and discourages out of state travelers at this time.

San Damiano’s gift shop is OPEN by appointment.  Please send an e-mail to to set-up shopping appointments or pickups and to order books to be shipped to your address of choice.
