Our Mission Statement

The mission of San Damiano Retreat is to provide a hospitable place of spiritual renewal for people of all faiths in the tradition of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi. 


If the walls of San Damiano could speak, they would tell stories of love and sacred experiences.  Here are a few such stories.

Hosted Retreats

Planning your own retreat or meeting? We’ll host it for you. Reserve our facilities and customize your retreat, conference, or gathering to fit the needs of your group, school, or church. All faiths welcome.

Spiritual Direction

One of the hallmarks of Franciscan and spiritual direction ministries is accompaniment. Together with your spiritual director, you will explore God’s presence, voice, and activity in your life. Through prayer, conversation, listening, and asking questions, your spiritual director can help you respond to God and take steps to further your relationship.
