St. Francis Center for Renewal is founded and staffed by the School Sisters of St. Francis and is built on our tradition of ongoing conversion of heart through prayer, reflection, liturgical celebration and contemplation. The Center provides a variety of retreats in its annual program that includes: weekend retreats, Days of Reflection and Twilight Retreats. St. Francis Center hosts numerous not-for-profit and faith based events. Additionally the Center is available to organizations in need of a peaceful and stress-free environment for their staff retreat, workshop or board meeting. Located on over 50 acres of natural beauty and embraced by the gentle flow of Monocacy Creek, the grounds offer wide open spaces for walking.
