A Meeting Place So Serene, Even the Trees Whisper

The Franciscan Renewal Center in Scottsdale, Arizona offers non-profit organizations an exclusively serene gathering place for meetings, conferences, and special events.  Nestled in the lush desert valley by majestic Camelback Mountain in greater Phoenix, the Franciscan Renewal Center (also known as the “Casa de Paz y Bien” or simply “the Casa”), invites such groups to gather for single-day or multi-day events in beautiful desert spaces and technologically equipped banquet facilities.

With conference rooms and lodging designed to inspire the mind and soothe the spirit, as well as exceptional food to nourish the body, the Franciscan Renewal Center is a wellness plan for non-profits that allows them to renew and recharge.

Just minutes from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, the Franciscan Renewal Center is a world away from the frenzy of the city – providing abundant opportunities for clarity, focus, and solitude on our 25 pristine acres.  Distractions are minimized so every non-profit group can focus and maximize their meeting or conference success.
