About the Franciscan Spirituality Center

The Franciscan Spirituality Center is rooted in the Franciscan tradition of hospitality, simplicity and Gospel values. We welcome people of all faiths and provide a place of renewal and relaxation for individuals and groups. We offer you an opportunity to experience solitude and peace in the heart of La Crosse, Wisconsin.

Before you step over the threshold, please take a walk around our neighborhood community. You will enjoy the spectacular architecture that surrounds us and appreciate the enduring commitment of perpetual prayer by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration.

Located at 920 Market Street in La Crosse, Wisconsin our neighbors are Mayo Clinic Health System Franciscan Healthcare, Viterbo University, Mary of the Angels Chapel and the St. Rose Convent. This community neighborhood is flourishing with sacred traditions for those who seek to discover the mysteries of our Universe. 

Come inside the Franciscan Spirituality Center to discover a variety of meeting rooms that accommodate small and larger groups, our simple but comfortable bedrooms, or our warm and welcoming Sophia bookstore for a cup of complimentary coffee and free WiFi.
