San Damiano Retreat and Gift Shop remain closed. At this stage, we await further news from Contra Costa County Health Department regarding a reopening date. We are offering retreats on-line and invite you to explore our offerings.
We are busy preparing for that day and the new “normal”. Part of that new normal will be permitting entry to registered guests only. We will be asking walkers and hikers to turn around at the parking lot. If you wish to make a visit or “look around” we will ask that you call us to arrange for a visit to San Damiano.
This is a hard decision for us. We are a ministry of welcome. However, part of being hospitable is protecting the health and safety of our guests, residents, and employees.
