Our Mother of Sorrows Monastery and Retreat Center is an historic monastery at 110 Monastery Avenue in West Springfield, Massachusetts. The Spanish Colonial Revival building on the campus (construction begun in 1925) is the only structure of its type in the city, and one of two monasteries in the city. The building was extended in 1955 with the addition of a retreat center. The property was converted for use as an elder hostel in 1990,[2] and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.
