Come Away and Rest Awhile

The Franciscan Renewal Center was founded more than 60 years ago to do one thing: offer retreats – a respite away from a busy world where prayer and contemplation are the only agenda of the day. In a serene, 25-acre setting — nestled between Mummy and Camelback mountains in greater Phoenix’s most scenic spot – all are welcome here to discover spiritual growth, healing and transformation that moves lives into the service of others. Countless individuals have been transformed through new insights that are discovered here and new choices that propel them forward.
