Services: Holy Family Retreat Center offers the people of the diocese a place for retreats, education programs, days and evenings of recollection, private retreats and spiritual direction. It is open to diocesan-wide events, and also for individual parish programs.

Holy Family Retreat Center is a ministry of the Catholic Diocese of Beaumont. It is owned and staffed by the Diocese, and is supported by the generosity of the Catholic faithful of southeast Texas and partially funded by Bishop's Faith Appeal. It opened in April 1985.

The Center is located in Northwest Beaumont on 55 acres of piney woods. The setting is quiet and solitary. There is ample paved roadway in the wooded privacy for walking, jogging, and biking. Persons and groups of all faiths, men and women, lay and religious, church and non-profit organizations, are welcome to Holy Family.
