Bergamo Center for Lifelong Learning was founded in 1967 by the Society of Mary (Marianists) religious order. Bergamo was named after the childhood home of Pope John XXIII. Originally established strictly as a retreat house, Bergamo grew over the years to become a full-service retreat and conference center. Bergamo resides on the 150-acre campus of Mount Saint John, home to many Marianist of Ohio and numerous other Marianist projects.
Bergamo Center for Lifelong Learning: a retreat and conference center founded in the tradition of the Roman Catholic Church and the Society of Mary, extends hospitality in a spirit of peace and renewal by providing a tranquil, natural environment in which individuals and groups refresh the body, expand the mind and renew the spirit.
