Siena Prayer Center

“Come away by yourselves to a lonely place and rest awhile.” —Mark 6:30

Siena Prayer Center at St. Catherine by the Sea in Ventura, California, offers a place of tranquility and peace for all to experience.

Come and deepen your relationship with God. Be still and open yourself to the Divine Presence. Come, spend some quiet time. Discover new insights. Let God surprise you.

The center, with its beautifully landscaped grounds, will help you to experience God in a unique and special way. You are invited to walk the paths and enjoy the lovely gardens, climb the hill behind the center, and enjoy a view of the ocean from on high.
