For Members of Media

The Franciscan Renewal Center welcomes the opportunity to schedule interviews, share subject matter experts, provide up-to-date information and answer questions for all members of the news media. It is our goal to assist the media as promptly and efficiently as possible.

All on-site and phone interviews must be scheduled through our Communications department. Email communications(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)thecasa.org and we will do everything we can to arrange interviews in a timely manner.

You can also call 480.948.7460 during business hours and ask for the Communications department.

Photo / Video Access

Members of the media are asked to first check-in with the Communications department by phone or by emailing communications(Replace this parenthesis with the @ sign)thecasa.org. After the department has confirmed, you are asked to check in at the front desk before recording or taking photographs on property. Because our campus is a site for licensed, behavioral health counseling – as well as spiritual growth, healing or service to others – we strive to maintain a serene and peaceful place for personal reflection. Please respect the privacy preferences and rights of guests at the Franciscan Renewal Center, and we will gratefully work with you to secure the images you need.
