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.

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.
