Graymoor Spiritual Life Center

Graymoor Spiritual Life Center

Since they opened their Spiritual Life Center at Graymoor in 1970, the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement have offered people of many different religious traditions and all walks of life an opportunity to slow down and encounter the Spirit in their lives.

Graymoor Spiritual Life Center Visitor Center
Spiritual Life Center, Graymoor
Garrison, New York

The Graymoor Spiritual Life Center offers a year-round schedule of weekend, weekday, and evening retreats and programs designed for both groups and individuals, including married couples, seniors, young adults, clergy, and men and women in recovery. Others focus on specific topics that meet proven needs — e.g., spirituality of the twelve steps, what Christians can learn from the insights and practices of Buddhists, etc.

The Center also hosts meetings, conferences, and days of renewal for parish and church groups, high school and college students, and denominational and interreligious organizations. It provides chapel space, meeting rooms, dining facilities, and overnight accommodations.

The Center is also the location for weekly holy hours and Centering Prayer experiences and regular AA, NA, Alanon, and Recovery, Inc., meetings.

The Graymoor Spiritual Life Center is located at 1320 Route 9 in Garrison, NY, five miles north of Peekskill, NY, and 13 miles south of I-84. Take MetroNorth's Hudson River Line from Grand Central (or 125th Street) to Peekskill, taxi from Peekskill to Graymoor. Driving Directions >>

THE SPIRITUAL DIRECTIONS

In the Franciscan tradition, this outdoor retreat will explore: “What is the greatest commandment?” and “How should we pray?” In creation,through meditation and scripture, we pray with our heart, mind, soul, and strength. Towards each direction, we find meaning, reflect upon impediments to prayer, and practice the virtues that lead us to the spirit of God.
