It was built in memory and honor of the Servant of God, Msgr. Aloysius Schwartz, known to his thousands of spiritual children and friends as Fr. Al, as a venue for retreats, recollections, and conferences.

Located within the Sisters of Mary Girlstown Complex, Fr. Al's Retreat House aims to enrich our spiritual being. Likewise, we may invite our families, peers/friends, co-employees, parishioners and other groups to promote our devotion to the Blessed Mother, the Virgin of the Poor and spread the love of Christ through our dear founder, Fr. Al Schwartz and the Sisters of Mary’s charitable works. Retreatants, however, may hold their own activities according to their desired schedules.

“Be refreshed and healed spiritually through the Sacrament of Confession every Saturday and Sunday, 3:00 p.m., and Holy Mass at 4 p.m.”

Within its vicinity are:

VOP Chapel
* The Virgin of the Poor Chapel, lone replica in the Philippines of the Chapel of the Apparitions of the Virgin of the Poor in Belgium
* The Virgin of the Poor Fount and Candle house
* Fr. Al’s Chapel (within the Retreat House)
* Stations of the Cross and Fr. Al's Memorial Statue
