The Flaget Center is owned by the Archdiocese of Louisville and is the only retreat center in the area that can accommodate multiple groups of up to 300 people at a time. Located in a residential area and only fifteen minutes from Louisville International Airport, the Center is easily accessible for those traveling from all points in the U.S. The facility was originally built in 1957 and served as Angela Merici High School, an all-girls Catholic High-School until it closed in 1984. After extensive renovations in the mid 80s, it was reopened to accommodate retreat groups, educational programs, and needs of other non-profit organizations. The Flaget Center offers guests comfortable meeting rooms and a place to plan, pray and build community. Over the past twenty years, thousands of people have passed through these hallways in search of a renewed presence and a spiritual journey with God. It is easy to experience peace and tranquility while visiting here, however the best part is the sharing of experiences and the bonding that takes place.
