The Franciscan Center offers an environment of peace, simplicity and hospitality for all those seeking spiritual renewal.
The Center is a private, non-profit retreat center staffed by the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany, NY and dedicated laity who are assisted by loyal staff 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.
Our mission: In the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, we welcome everyone who seeks spiritual growth through a deeper relationship with God in a place of peace, community, healing and joy.
