THE REDEMPTORIST RENEWAL CENTER:
Situated in the foothills of the Tucson Mountains and the beautiful Sonoran Desert, the Redemptorist Renewal Center at Picture Rocks is a spiritual life and renewal center that provides a unique opportunity for solitude, reflection, prayer and contemplative practice.
Located on 120 acres that border the Saguaro National Park West, it is a site that appeals to the nature lover and gently challenges the more urban personality.
With miles of trails available into the desert, the variety of the desert flora (especially the cacti) and fauna, plus ancient Hohokam Indian rock art (petroglyphs). Most of the petroglyphs at this site is believed to have been created by the Hohokam Indian culture between A.D. 750 and 1350. They are located on the Renewal Center property (Petroglyph information @ RRC). This is an atmosphere that inevitably nudges visitors to draw closer to the sacred.
For visitors who take precious time away from their demanding life circumstances, the Renewal Center becomes what it once was for the Hohokam, who etched their appreciation of life and its meaning on the jagged rocks hundreds of years ago: holy ground.
These rooms include private bath with shower or tub and one double bed or two twin beds.
Each room has individual climate control. The standard rooms are within easy walking distance of the meeting rooms, the chapel, and the dining room. There are a total of thirty-eight standard rooms in four buildings.
