A Little About Graymoor Spiritual Life Center
In the Franciscan tradition of hospitality, Graymoor Spiritual Life Center (GSLC), is a ministry of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement, a Roman Catholic religious community dedicated to the reconciliation, or at-one-ment, of people with themselves, each other, and God. The Center sponsors and hosts retreats, conferences, days of renewal and recollection, meetings, and other events, welcoming individuals and groups of all faiths for spiritual retreats, meetings, conferences and pilgrimages. Graymoor is home to the outdoor Shrine of St. Anthony, the historic St. Francis Chapel, and the tomb of Atonement Society founder Fr. Paul Wattson, SA, Servant of God, Apostle of Christian Unity and Charity, an outdoor labyrinth with Peace Pole and many other places for peaceful reflection and contemplation.
Located on a mountaintop overlooking the Hudson River Valley, facilities include overnight accommodations, large dining room, a library, three chapels, as well as meeting/seminar facilities. All meals are included; there are vending machines for snacks however feel free to bring your own. Towels, linens and one pillow per bed is provided. (Bathrobes are recommended for shower use.) Bring your own alarm clock and any extra pillows you may want.
