Retreats At The Holy Mountain Franciscan Retreat Center

Rediscover Unity with God and With Yourself

The Holy Mountain Franciscan Retreat Center is a ministry of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement, a Roman Catholic religious community 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.

Along with hosting our own events as a ministry of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement, we also invite groups from around the country to hold their retreats and conferences here. The Center has 85 single guest rooms. Seated dining for as many as 300; and meeting and chapel space for up to 650.
