The vision of losOlivos has, from its inception in 2005, received the prayerful support and encouragement of many friends. Since the centre opened its doors in 2010, the informal community of supporters who have prayed for us, stayed with us, and given generously to the centre, has grown both geographically and numerically.
Friends of losOlivos undertake to support the centre in one or more of the following ways:
1. Pray: for the losOlivos ministry, the retreat programme, teaching community, other friends of losOlivos, and the life of the centre. This is the way we stay in touch with each other. You will know about the latest news and prayer concerns through our quarterly prayer newsletters, sent to you via email.
2. Stay: come and stay at losOlivos and be part of our resident community for a few days, either as part of a programmed retreat/course or for personal retreat. This is one of the most special parts of our ministry, sharing together around the dinner table, worshipping as a family every morning and enjoying each other's company and conversation.
3. Give: make a donation to losOlivos. We are grateful for our Friends' generosity. Giving to Los Olivos enables those who might not be able to afford the trip to join us.
This enables us to offer bursaries to clergy and guests who would otherwise not be able to come to the centre.
