Retreat Center for Central Honduras: A contemplative place for groups and individuals
The view from the property.
The Zamorano Retreat Center will be situated near the town of Zamorano in the beautiful valley of the Yeguare River, with its lush farmland landscapes and surrounding mountains. Zamorano is only half an hour east of Tegucigalpa, located perfectly for retreats in the central part of Honduras.

The center will serve more than 120 people and be able to hold diocesan meetings, Cursillos, Happenings, Alpha (1) and other events. On the far side of the campus, small cabins will be available for personal retreats.

(1) For those not familiar with these programs:
Cursillo, which means a 'Short Course' in English, is a weekend retreat of instruction and prayer to intensify or renew one's relationship with God. Afterwards, the retreatants may continue to meet in their churches.
Happenings is similar to Cursillo, except that it is for teen-agers.
Alpha is a course on basic Christianity. People meet every week for a meal and some plain talk about God. At the end, there is a retreat.
