The Franciscan Center provides a quiet, reflective atmosphere for people of all faiths and beliefs for retreats, workshops, seminars, select celebrations, or just time away.
We strive to combine the beauty of our surroundings with simple comfortable facilities and nutritious food.
The Center has three buildings which include: 34 bedrooms with baths; 2 handicapped bedrooms; 2 large conference rooms (45-120); 3 small meeting rooms (6-40); a lobby, fireplace and reception area; and a large dining room with a bright, comfortable and relaxing atmosphere for 120 persons.
Francis Place is our main conference center building. Our registration desk and administrative offices are located in this building. The Second Floor has twelve bedrooms with baths making 24 beds available in this building. There are also three meeting rooms of various sizes.
Marian Hall has two floors of single, double, and triple bedrooms with a total of 46 beds. There are also two small meeting rooms on the Garden Level.
We have a large selection of conference rooms to fill your special groups’ needs. We can accommodate groups of up to 120 with theatre-style seating and can arrange classroom-style seating to fit your desires or needs for smaller groups.
We provide state-of-the-art audio/visual equipment. Please call our Registration Office at (719) 955-7025 for further details. Office hours for registrations are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
We welcome people of all faiths as well as non-profit and business groups. Many of our church groups will conduct their own services in their meeting rooms or outdoors, weather permitting. On weekends, Catholic Masses are scheduled at St. Francis of Assisi Parish which is located on campus. Services are held Saturday evenings at 5:00 pm, and Sunday mornings at 8:30 and 10:30 am. Massage and Spiritual Direction are available upon request. We invite you to enjoy our relaxing native trails which provide opportunity for meditative walks and beautiful views of Mount Cedar, Mount St. Francis, the Rampart Range of the Rockies, and our campus.
