Stella Maris Retreat Center

Convent in Bataan at the Retreat Center

International Novitiate

Balanga City, Bataan, The Philippines

Established 2008 

On January 18, 2010 the Sisters of Notre Dame celebrated the dedication of the new Stella Maris (Mary, Star of the Sea) Retreat Center, the first Catholic retreat center in the Diocese of Balanga in Bataan, Philippines. Located about three hours from Manila, Stella Maris Retreat Center is on a hill overlooking Manila Bay and provides an excellent environment for silence and prayer. It is hoped that the retreats held here will lead many people, especially the youth of the diocese, to a deeper living of their Christian faith.

This is also the site of a convent for the sisters and an international novitiate built in response to the formation needs of the interested young women from the newer Asian missions being served by the Sisters of Notre Dame.
