St. Francis of the Woods is an ecumenical spiritual retreat center. We offer directed retreats for individuals and space for self-directed or group retreats. This is a place where all persons from every background are welcomed.
Our mission is to empower people to renew their spirits and transform the world through community, creativity, and care for creation.St. Francis of Assisi believed that God's fingerprints were all over creation. In nature, he connected to the Divine Love that connects all things. St. Francis of the Woods seeks to be a place where all people from every spiritual background can seek the Love of the Creator in creation. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here.
St. Francis of the Woods features two cabins and two lodges, as well as the Upper Room (above the Learning Center) to accommodate overnight retreats for groups or individuals. All lodging facilities have a kitchen equipped with cooking and eating utensils. Linens and towels are provided for all guests. Food is not provided, but visitors are welcome to join us for lunch on Wednesdays and Sundays at noon in the Learning Center.
The Learning Center or Upper Room are great spaces to hold workshops and retreats.
