Starting Friday, August 28, we're asking our guests to please use the 701 Franciscan Way entrance (main door to St. Rose Convent) when visiting the FSC. The door at 920 Market Street will be closed as we remodel our office and lobby. If you need wheelchair access, you may enter the building at 912 Market Street. We're sorry for any inconvenience, but we are sure you will love our new open reception area when the construction is finished.

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!
