Mt. Claret Receives $30,000 Grant

Mt Claret received $30,000 grant from Catholic Community Foundation Giving Circle Community Grant program! The funds are intended to be used for Mt Clarets Chapel Renewal project- specifically to underwrite the cost of the pews. Thank You CCF!!!


We are keeping our chapel open daily from 9 am-7pm for private prayer. The temporary chapel is located through the Archbishop McCarthy Door in the conference center on the south side of the parking lot. We are also encouraging people to explore our campus while we are in this limited use condition. There are several beautiful prayer spaces-go to the facilities drop down and select outdoor ground for a look at these special spaces.

Welcome to Mount Claret!

Throughout the Gospels we see the Lord Jesus repeatedly call the disciples to step away to a quiet place where they can be sustained by prayer. In fact, he even tells one of His followers that such time spent with him “is the only necessary thing.” Our Lord still desires to spend time with us. After having entered into union with Him by way of our Baptism, we are continually invited by God to grow in knowledge and love with him. Such a profound relationship requires time away from the busyness of our lives when we allow Him to renew us in His love.

Here at the base of Camelback Mountain, Mount Claret Retreat Center provides a true sanctuary where the faithful can step away and attend to the only necessary thing: time spent with the Lord. The center is especially fitting for meetings and retreats for all types of groups and organizations such as parish communities and staff, elementary and high school students and faculty and youth groups. Mount Claret is also the home of Cursillo Retreats, Christ Child Society, Knights & Dames of Malta and many more.

"Come, let us climb the Lord’s Mountain…that He may instruct us…in His ways and we may walk in His path." —Isaiah 2:3
