About the Spiritual Renewal Center
The SRC is located on approximately 40 of 200 rolling acres, owned by the Diocese of Victoria in Texas. It is nestled along the banks of the San Antonio River and for 28 years has been a place of prayer, reflection, spiritual nourishment and peace. The SRC participates in the mission of the church of Victoria as well as the universal Catholic Church by providing a place apart from the demands of everyday life where individuals may go seeking God more deeply in their lives.
The story of the land and how the SRC found its’ home there has many facets. The physical location and design of the site was chosen by the 1st Bishop of Victoria, Most Rev. Charles V. Grahmann. The land now owned by the Diocese of Victoria was acquired from Our Lady of Lourdes. Our Lady of Lourdes acquired the land through a bequest from Gussie Schmidt. When Bishop Grahmann saw the character and beauty of the land he instantly knew he wanted the future Spiritual Renewal Center built on that picturesque land! He envisioned a rustic setting with “log cabin” type lodging and a chapel.
The Spiritual Renewal Center exists to provide a place apart from the demands of everyday life where individuals may go seeking God more deeply in their lives.
The desire of the Diocese of Victoria and all who have experienced the beauty and peacefulness of the SRC is for as many others as possible to experience the same.
