Meetings Guests Say
Our group had a wonderful retreat and sincerely appreciated the Renewal Center accommodations. Any staff I encountered were friendly and helpful. Everything was in place as promised in our meeting rooms. Sleeping rooms and dining experience proved to be beyond our expectations.
Absolutely awesome, so very beautiful. Many thanks to all involved in the delvelopment of this breathe taking new CASA Home to worship. The design of the Church and the Art Work will challenge us all in our own spiritual journey. Thank you for this preview into our new Church. I just can’t wait to personally experience it.
Everything encompassing and enclosed within this chamber has a long-awaited significance and purpose. I recall those who first envisioned it almost 30 years ago – now fulfilled after so many others have had the chance to be part of its planning and execution – and know that every brick, board and piece of glass is blessed. Looking forward to attending and appreciating this beautiful sanctuary next time I’m in town to visit Mom!
Beautiful!! The community that has to sit in the lobby and outdoors during mass will make the heart of the church beat louder!

This is a Catholic Church? Somehow I don’t get that message…
All in the spirit of St. Francis. We open our new doors to our community and beyond. ☮️✝️💟
