Who We Are

Our Mission

We are a small community living a simplistic Franciscan Life: living out our Gospel call to serve. 

We strive to bring God's healing presence to all people we encounter.  

Fill out the Contact Us form below and let us discern with you what your Gospel call may be.

Franciscan Life

Our community is patterned after the early followers of St. Francis: living simply, serving our neighbor, and bringing God's healing presence to the world.  We have a special inclination to serve the poor as St. Francis by seeing the face of God in all brothers and sisters who are outcast.


It is goof for us to spend time in prayer, silence, reflection.  At our retreat center, our peaceful setting offers you, your family or your group the ideal space to re-center and get in touch with yourself, with others, and with our Creator.
