The Franciscan Spirituality Center is a sacred place of simplicity and hospitality for those seeking spiritual renewal, healing and deeper self-awareness. We welcome people of all faiths to come to learn and experience Franciscan spirituality by discovering God in all creation. We offer individual and group spiritual direction, program and retreat offerings, meeting room space for organizations interested in overnight or daylong conferences or retreats and compassionate listening. Come, reflect in peace or visit with others. Everyone is welcome. Peace and all good!
