Retreats At The Graymoor Spiritual Life Center

Rediscover Unity with God and With Yourself

The GRAYMOOR SPIRITUAL LIFE 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 56 guest rooms that can accommodate up to 112 people; seated dining for as many as 300; and both meeting and chapel space for up to 650.
