DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, ACTIVITIES AT THE CASA ARE SUSPENDED UNTIL WE CAN SAFELY REOPEN. CATHOLIC MASS IS LIVESTREAMED 7 DAYS A WEEK AT 8 AM ON YOUTUBE.COM/THECASAFRC.

All are Welcome

Since 1951, the Franciscan Renewal Center — affectionately known as the “Casa de Paz y Bien” or simply “the Casa” — has existed in Paradise Valley, Ariz., to offer spiritual growth, healing and transformation that moves lives into the service of others.

The Casa was founded by and is today an active religious community of the Order of Friars Minor — part of the worldwide Franciscan family, following in the footsteps of Sts. Francis and Clare of Assisi. The Casa is a wholly owned entity of the Franciscan Friars Province of Saint Barbara, based in Oakland, Calif., that works cooperatively with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix.

Activities at the Casa include daily and Sunday Mass, spiritual retreats, wellness retreats, gathering space for non-profit groups, licensed behavioral health counseling, spiritual direction, as well as more than 50 volunteer ministries that give aid to the poor or vulnerable, empower individuals to improve their circumstances, and build community fellowship.

501 ( c ) 3 non-profit. Tax ID 86-0720036.
