*Special Notice* While Phoenix has experienced very few instances of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we at the Franciscan Renewal Center take the safety of our guests and employees very seriously. We are taking the following precautions and measures to keep our campus and facilities disinfected during this current world health event. Our Facilities, Housekeeping and Kitchen staffs are vigilantly cleaning all touch surfaces with a QUAT (quaternary ammonium chloride compounds) disinfectant, which is low in toxicity and corrosivity and used by many hospitals.

  • Facilities is cleaning all tables, chairs, podiums, laptops, remote controls, touch screens and door/window handles and other touched surfaces each time they setup or clean up a conference room.
  • Housekeeping is cleaning all restrooms, public areas lodging rooms with this same disinfectant.  All solid surfaces, door handles, soap dispensers, hand dryers, and touch surfaces are being disinfected regularly.
  • The Kitchen staff is cleaning all tables, chairs, door handles, solid surfaces, dispenser buttons and knobs, and all touch surfaces with said disinfectant.
  • Our Front Desk staff is cleaning all lobby furniture, the desk, door handles and touch surfaces with said disinfectant.
  • Our staff members have been informed to frequently wash their hands and to stay home if they have any signs of illness or fever.

During this time, at all public liturgies in the Our Lady of the Angels Church, we will offer communion in the hand only and suspend the common cup.

We pray for those who are sick, for healthcare workers, and for all who are living in fear and anxiety.

A Meeting Place So Serene, Even the Trees Whisper
