The Center of Renewal Retreat & Conference Center, sponsored by the Sisters of Saint Francis Holy Name Province, maintains a tranquil 85-bed facility at Stella Niagara, New York, located just 10 miles north of Niagara Falls, two miles from Artpark and the Village of Lewiston, and four miles from Old Fort Niagara in Youngstown.
Everything at the Center of Renewal is located within the same building – meeting rooms, dining room, sleeping rooms – making it the perfect site for rest and relaxation and close-by parking. Our numerous meeting spaces include rooms for 1 to 100 people to meet, with various room setup arrangements possible in theatre style, classroom, interactive circles, break-out rooms, and more. Enjoy the peace and comfort of our retreat center, with a variety of overnight sleeping rooms primarily featuring comfortable pillow-top mattresses and upgraded décor in our Lounge, Conference Room and Chapel Meeting Room, and all casual meeting areas.
When you want to enjoy our tranquil 134-acres of natural beauty located on the Lower Niagara River, just walk outside our front door. Experience our nature trail, labyrinth, River Chapel, Peace Garden, outdoor Stations of the Cross, and more.
Groups and individuals enjoy their experiences at the Center of Renewal, with many holding their events here year after year. We pride ourselves in our versatile hospitality in making your event special, and we welcome your inquiry and reservations for future retreats. Whether you want to make a private retreat, schedule a faith-based family reunion or quilting/crafters weekend, attend one of our own sponsored retreats, or reserve a meeting room and overnight accommodations for your own group program or retreat, the Center of Renewal is the place to be. Spiritual directors can be scheduled for private retreatants by request, along with reflexology and other services by appointment. We also have a master trainer and certified facilitator on staff to help enhance your overall group learning experiences, offer staff development days, board strategic planning retreats and leadership/management or organizational development programs, and other customized workplace relationship or values-based sessions. A new initiative features special programming in workplace spirituality and mission integration for Niagara and Erie County organizations.
Various sponsored retreats are offered throughout the year at the Center of Renewal at Stella Niagara. Pre-registrations should be made two weeks prior to each event; just call us for details.
