In 2021, Mount Calvary Monastery & Retreat Center will close its doors. For the past 10 years, St. Luke's parishioners have made the trek up to Santa Barbara for the annual Parish Retreat. Not only to they get to gather together to meditate and pray, but also to immerse themselves in the rich history of the monastery and the brothers. Click here to read an article from L.A. Times (January 2009) about the Brothers and their post-fire lives.
"Whether on the breathtaking Gibraltar Road mountaintop, or nestled, post-fire, beside Old Mission Santa Barbara, Mount Calvary Monastery is a “thin place,” where the space between earth and heaven seems “thinner,” and one might encounter God." – Arlene Thompson, Parishioner
