Private Retreats

A private  retreat provides persons of any faith an opportunity for prayer in the contemplative environment of the Franciscan Spiritual Center.   Retreats provide a time to slow down our bodies, minds and spirits enabling us to listen more deeply to the movement of God’s Spirit in our lives and, therefore, silence is often provided during this time.

For those who would like a liturgy in the Catholic tradition daily Eucharsist is available in Our Lady of Angels Convent chapel and the Franciscan Office is also said before Mass and in the evening.

Often arrangements can be made for a private retreat at the Franciscan Spiritual Center, Clare House, or the Hermitages when space is available at these locations.  To make arrangements please call:
