"As a deer longs for running springs, so my soul longs for you oh God (Psalms 42)"

Why St. Anne's?

St. Anne's in the Mountains hosts one of Southern California's most beautiful year-round spiritual retreat centers. The retreat/ conference facility is situated on 22 acres among native oak and pine trees, with a panoramic view of the valley below. Our center is perfect for youth retreats, and is an ideal setting for the various needs of priests, religious and laity leaders featuring:

- Private Chapel
- Outdoor Marian Shrine
- Dorm style sleeping accommodates up to 60 people
- Large conference room with fireplace and air conditioner
- Commercial Kitchen


Nestled on the edge of the San Bernardino Mountains, overlooking the entire Inland Empire, is our large facility. For those attending weekend retreats, St. Anne's in the Mountains invites retreatants to bring your own priests, spiritual leaders, or recollection teams and schedule your own liturgies, or you are welcome to join our parish community Mass. All musicians are welcome to participate!

Skiing Anyone? St. Anne's is a great facility just minutes away from the famed Snow Valley Ski slopes. Many Youth Ministers have scheduled Winter Ski weekends for their youth groups as a chance to bond together in a relaxed weekend, away from home with all the fun of a full service Ski Resort. St. Anne's offers great outings, at a reasonable price, to help make these dreams a reality for the budget minded.

Why not a One-Day, Mid-Week Retreat? Many groups ranging from one day, Day of Recollections for youth, Parish Council getaways, to Staff Day planning sessions in the Mountains, have enjoyed our friendly atmosphere.

We can arrange upon request a menu that can include a welcoming continental breakfast to a full service lunch, with menu items selected to group needs, tastes and desires. Give us a call. The Retreat Facilitator will love helping you put a truly satisfying day together.

Our new Shower and Bath House provides plenty of opportunities for large groups with no waiting in line! The facilities are separate for men and women and support the physically challenged.


The two new A-Frames overlook the San Bernardino Valley and provide views that promote quiet reflection and a time to be closer to God. Both A-Frames can sleep up to 8 people and are fully equipped with a complete kitchen and living room.


The Lodge (known formerly as the Rectory) is nestled in the forest. It is also fully equipped to handle 20 people and is just a short downhill walk to the Church.

To schedule a retreat, day of recollection, or a parish related outing, call or write the the Retreat Facilitator, Terry MacDonald of St. Anne's parish office.
