St. Francis of the Woods is an Ecumenical Spiritual Retreat Center. We have space for individuals or groups. Guests are invited to visit any time. It is a place where all persons from every background are welcomed. Sincere seekers on any of the countless spiritual paths are invited to share the grounds and facilities for worship, study, rest, work, and to be of service to one another, to God, and the Center.
Our mission is to practice love, according to the mandates of Jesus Christ, and to the extent possible, lend support to all causes of benefit to people. We host a variety of groups seeking the betterment of humanity through spirituality and the arts.
Dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi, the Center reflects his love and respect for all creation. We have beautiful, moss covered walking trials meandering through a beautiful and diverse landscape. Our facilities provide a place for study, meditation, rest, and inspiration.
It is our hope that you will find St. Francis of the Woods to be a place that honors St. Francis's memory and ministry. Please join us in our experience of God in creation or in the ancient worship of the Church.
