Welcome to the St Francis Retreat Centre
for Retreats, Days of Prayer, Conferences and Workshops
The Retreat Centre is a ministry of the Order of Friars Minor, brothers and priests following in the footsteps of St Francis of Assisi. It is open to many different faiths and groups for Retreats, Days of Prayer, Conferences and Workshops.
The Centre is located in three hectares of park-like surroundings 20 minutes from Auckland Airport. The surrounding grounds provide a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere for all who visit.
The Centre is staffed by Franciscan Friars and dedicated lay people who carry on the Franciscan Spirit of hospitality and peace.
We welcome you.
Chapel Refurbishment Project
We are embarking on a project to refurbish our Chapel at the Retreat Centre. Our Chapel is a place of worship and prayer open to all, providing a place for reflection, prayer, quiet and the celebration of the Sacraments.
