St. Raphaela Center

About us

St. Raphaela Center’s retreat ministry strives to provide a peaceful‚ welcoming atmosphere for all who are looking for a place and a time for God. It is a “home away from home” where people can “come inside and rest awhile,” an oasis of peaceful surroundings where all can:

“Be still and know that I am God!”

Located just 10 miles from Center City Philadelphia, the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and staff of St. Raphaela Center have a long-standing tradition of opening their home to provide people with an experience that fosters both human and spiritual growth, wholeness, and healing. Our mission is to extend a warm welcome to people of all religious traditions and to facilitate prayer and a deep spiritual encounter by accompanying them in their search for God and for meaning in their lives.

St. Raphaela Center welcomes both Individuals and Groups looking for a time of retreat. We also offer scheduled Programs, including a variety of retreats and events organized by our Center staff around different thematic and spiritually-guided formats.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
