Franciscan Center

The Franciscan Center offers an environment of peace, simplicity and hospitality for all those seeking spiritual renewal. We welcome people from all faiths to come and find acceptance, peace and healing and to listen to God amidst the beauty of creation.

The Center is a private, non-profit retreat house staffed by the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany, NY and dedicated laity who are assisted by loyal volunteers in carrying out their ministry. Throughout the year, various professional retreat directors assist the staff in offering group programs and private retreats. The Center also is available for groups wishing to host their retreat or meeting here.
