The Stillness Calls You

Discover the Christine Center: Your Sanctuary of Stillness and Serenity since 1980

Our journey began with a mission deeply rooted in the Franciscan principles of contemplation, hospitality, compassion, simplicity, transformation, and care for our Earth Community. Over the years, we have grown into a thriving and inclusive haven for seekers from many paths, transcending boundaries of nationality, culture, and creed.

As you step through our entrance door, you’ll be greeted by a powerful proclamation: “We are one!” This statement embodies our commitment to unity, diversity, and the timeless pursuit of inner peace and renewal. Join us at the Christine Center and experience the essence of stillness, where everyone is embraced, and where the journey towards self-discovery is nurtured.


Through our exclusive retreats and transformative programs designed to nurture spiritual development and self-realization, our

aim is to provide you with meaningful experiences tailored to both the demands of the modern era and the depths of the soul.

Retreat Programs

Deepen your spiritual practice through our diverse program offerings designed to help all find retreat to nourish their path.

Personal & Guided Retreats

A personal retreat can be transformative, deepening your spirituality through soul work and reconnecting with the divine in a sacred space.

Spiritual Guidance
