Renew Your Spirit

The Graymoor Spiritual Life Center is a ministry of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement, dedicated to the reconciliation, or at-one- ment, of people with themselves, each other, and God. The Center sponsors and hosts many retreats, conferences, days of renewal and recollection, pilgrimages, meetings and other events. Opened in 1970, the Graymoor Spiritual Life Center has offered people of many different religious traditions and all walks of life an opportunity to slow down and encounter the Spirit in their lives.

We offer 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.

In addition to over two dozen weekend and weekday retreats for people in recovery, the Center is also the location for weekly holy hours and Centering Prayer experiences and regular AA, NA, Alanon, and Recovery, Inc., meetings.

We will happily schedule group retreats for your parish or organization and invite individuals to come to the Holy Mountain to restore connections to the deeper meaning of faith.

There are year-round opportunities on a space available basis, known as Days of Grace — usually weekdays, but occasionally on weekends — to relax, reflect, read, and pray. Days of Grace are $150 per person, per day (includes three meals and overnight accommodations) and an advance registration is required.

Enjoy the sweeping vistas of Graymoor, walk the labyrinth, pray and enjoy our Franciscan hospitality in the beautiful Hudson Valley of New York State.
