The Christine Center

The Stillness Calls You

Since its founding in 1980, the Christine Center is a welcoming place of retreat and renewal rooted in the underlying Franciscan values of contemplation, hospitality, compassion, simplicity, transformation, and care for our Earth Community.

As the Christine Center’s community continues to expand, we embrace all persons, nationalities, cultures, and creeds, as our sign above the entrance door proclaims,
“We are one!”


Spiritual deepening is our passion and mission.

Offering private retreats and programs that cultivate spiritual growth and realization,
we strive to bring you experiences that meet the needs of the times and 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 has transforming power. Deepen your spiritual life with soul work and reconnect with the divine through the sacred space of a personal retreat.

Spiritual Guidance

Experience contemplative support through spiritual guidance; the practice of accompanying a person as they awaken to the spiritual in everyday life.

We welcome everyone, people of all faiths and no faith, and of all spiritual paths.

Community Offerings

Moon Meditations

Circle of Compassion Blog

Since 2015, Sister M. Henrita Frost has shared the Compassion Blog as part of
