Peace be with you. St. Francis Retreat House in Easton, PA is a place we like to call home. Here we can find a new way of seeing God. Come explore the space, the outdoors, the sacred quiet of our chapels. Come walk and pray. Be still in the Divine Presence of our creator—Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Jesus saw two people following him and he asked, “What do you want?” They answered, “Teacher, where are you staying?” Jesus answered: “Come and See.” (The Gospel of John)
I cannot think of a better way to tell you about Saint Francis Retreat House than to simply invite you to “Come and See”! We here at Saint Francis would love for you to come and experience firsthand our Franciscan hospitality. As you read through the pages of this website, you will learn of the many opportunities and experiences possible. We have weekend and weekday overnight programs that might be just the thing you need to renew the fire of your life. If your time is limited, we also offer day programs and morning classes to assist you on your spiritual journey.
Saint Francis of Assisi discovered his identity and found great joy in all of God’s creation. You are most welcome to come here even for just a few hours, to take in the beauty of our grounds or to spend time in one of our chapels. Surrounded by God’s presence, you can also find joy and purpose in your own life.
In the Gospel of John, quoted above, the two people went with Jesus, saw the place where he stayed, and remained with him the whole day. After a visit to Saint Francis Retreat House, you may find yourself wanting to stay a bit longer, too. And so we invite you to “Come and See!”
