Welcome to Franciscan Retreats
and Spirituality Center


Franciscan Retreats and Spirituality Center is a spiritual oasis for people of all faiths who are seeking a deeper relationship with the Almighty. Our lovely grounds, beautiful chapel and comfortable accommodations, along with the care and concern of the friars and staff provide a quiet and reflective environment for personal prayer and reflection.

We are situated on 60 acres of land near the communities of Prior Lake and Savage, southwest of Minneapolis/St. Paul, Mn.




2017 Retreat Theme

Find the Missing Peace - Pathways to Prayer


Our 2017 retreat theme will explore some of the different types of prayer, as well as some of the joys and challenges we all face in prayer.  We will discover that the pathways to prayer, though many, all flow from the same source: a deep desire to draw closer to the Lord.
