The Juan Pablo II (John Paul II) Retreat House holds weekend Spiritual Retreats throughout the year. Retreats are known as "Spiritual Exercises". Facilities are available for use by other organizations interested in holding conferences and seminars. The site overlooks beautiful Biscayne Bay in Miami. The original House provides 20 individual, private rooms. Each room has its own lavatory with accessible, dormitory style, restrooms and shower facilities.
The newly constructed Residencia Jesus Maestro is a modern six story structure with 30 additional rooms (18 Single; 12 Double or Single Occupancy). Each room in Jesus Maestro has its own private bathroom. Amenities at RJM include a large Conference Center, smaller conference rooms, a library and dining facilities.
A well-maintained collegiate campus atmosphere surrounds the House. The "Loyola Chapel" provides ambiance for intimate introspection. The "Salon Loyola " is an elevated Chapel that also serves as a large conference room. It forms the roof for the "Galeria", a large covered terrace that opens to the grounds while providing protection in the event of inclement weather. Adjacent to the "Galeria" is the "Plaza de la Evangelización" with a sculpture of St. Peter, the "Fisher of Men" right on the water's edge. This Plaza holds a commanding view of Biscayne Bay. A privileged location to meditate, reflect, walk, pray and enjoy the view, for the Greater Glory of God. A safe location, one block East of Biscayne Boulevard. In close proximity to hotels, fine dining, shopping and the newly developed Miami Art District.
The Agrupación holds The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, one or two weekends each month. This leaves other dates open for religious organizations willing to rent the facilities, dependent on availability.
