St. Michael Retreat House [SMRH] was first called The Pentecost House. It was built by the Archdiocese of Manila for its Cursillo classes aimed at forming Christian leaders.
In 1972, when fewer Cursillo classes were being held, retreats and recollections organized by various parish-mandated organizations were accepted. Twelve years later, the management decided to change the name of the place and named it after St. Michael, the Archangel.
St. Michael Retreat House, being a venue for spiritual and other church-related activities, seeks to help in renewing and strengthening the family through education and formation.
The Retreat House offers retreats and recollection, formation sessions and conferences:
* for vocation discernment;
* for values and cultural development;
* marriage encounter;
* youth encounter;
* and evangelization programs.
The long list of activities is meant to renew them spiritually as well as to ensure their holistic and integral human education
