Franciscan Spirit and Life Center
A Ministry of the Sisters of St. Francis
of the Providence of God
Guided by the Franciscan traditions of joy, hospitality, compassion, peace and simplicity, we offer contemporary retreats and programs in response to the changing needs of God’s people.
The Center also welcomes groups who want to facilitate their own meetings, retreats or workshops. Whether you are planning a one-day workshop or a week-long conference, we will help you make your gathering a success.
Three hermitages built in the secluded wooded area on the grounds are available for day, overnight or extended stays for quiet, solitude and prayer. Hermitages provide space for one to be quiet in the company of God and all creation and nourish what is deep within the self.
