Restore and build a sense of the sacred…

Retreats

The Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist welcome guests to visit our Center and share in our life of worship and community. Each guest is invited to experience the mission of the community to restore and build a sense of the sacred found deep within humanity and in creation.

Located on 230 acres of wooded farm land, the Franciscan Life Process Center offers retreatants opportunities to reflect on natural cycles of growth. Walking trails, an orchard, large vegetable garden, and vineyard present peaceful settings of natural beauty. Guests may also experience a given cycle through a guided project on the land.
