About Us

La Casa de Maria is an interfaith retreat and conference center located in Santa Barbara, California.  At La Casa, you will find a beautiful, natural sanctuary of 26 semi-rural acres. We offer full-service retreat and conference packages for groups and individuals attending our programs.

On January 9, 2018, La Casa de Maria and its Center for Spiritual Renewal sustained substantial damage in the severe mud and debris flow that followed the Thomas Fire.

For now, we are working with a core staff to repair, renew, and eventually re-open our campus. Check back frequently for updates.
