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.
