About the Passionist Retreat Center in Houston, Texas:
In 1946, the fourth bishop of Galveston-Houston, Bishop Christopher Byrne, invited the Passionist Fathers and Brothers to come to the diocese to establish a retreat center.
In the early years, Holy Name Retreat Center limited retreats to men as the retreats were conducted in the Passionist’s own residence. Later in 1953, in order to invite more people to experience Jesus’ call to — “Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while,” (Mark 31:6) — the first expansion of the retreat center was dedicated with over four hundred in attendance.
Further rooms, chapel, and dining hall were added in the following years.
In keeping with the vision of St. Paul of the Cross, Holy Name Passionist Retreat Center supports and encourages the great human and spiritual adventure: the discovery of God and God’s loving compassion through Christ Crucified. Holy Name Passionist Retreat Center exists to provide hospitality, healing, compassion, and opportunities for spiritual growth for all people.
They offer retreats, days of reflection and other events for Catholic Men, Women Young Adults, Married Couples and the 12-step Community.
