A Place For You

Welcome to The Jesuit Retreat Center of Los Altos. Located in the warm sunlit hills high above South San Francisco Bay overlooking the Santa Clara Valley, we are a spirituality and retreat center that has provided retreats and programs rooted in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola for almost 95 years.


We invite all who seek a quiet place for a retreat, rest, reflection and prayer to visit us in order to draw closer to God. Our programs welcome people of all faiths who seek spiritual transformation and healing, and seek to discern how God may be calling them to lives of service for others.

Peaceful Scenery

Enjoy our 38-acres of wooded glens, abundant wildlife, and spectacular views of San Francisco Bay and the Silicon Valley region.

Hiking Trails

Hike our easy-access trails featuring the Stations of the Cross, statuary for meditation, and comfortable redwood benches for rest and prayer.

Rossi Chapel

Our chapel is always open for quiet prayer and celebration of the Mass.

Led by our pastoral team and nationally and internationally renowned authors and directors, we provide silent and non-silent retreats for men or women, or both; staff-directed or self-directed retreats; days of reflection, and the full complement of Ignatian retreats -- the 8-day, 30-day and the extended 19th Annotation. Explore our retreat calendar, programs, and conference center services to learn how we can serve you.

“There are so many ways to encounter God at The Jesuit Retreat Center – during prayer in the beautiful chapel; along the wooded paths that look out onto breathtaking mountain vistas; while slowly waking the Labyrinth and then visiting the nearby brook; or discovering a new author in the bookstore.”
