Schedule Your Event

We welcome a wide variety of religious and non-profit groups to St. Francis Retreat each year. Our guests range from Roman Catholic to Buddhist, Confirmation students to Senior quilting groups, Catholic High Schools to Chambers of Commerce. Many Recovery Groups also consider us their “home away from home.” We ask that groups seeking space here be reflective of the open, creative and nurturing attitude of St. Francis and his followers.

To book your event, fill out the form below, or call us directly at 831-623-4234. Our Retreat Coordinator will be in touch with you to secure a date, often the most difficult part of the process since our weekends fill up fast! Retreats range from a single day event without an overnight stay, to a maximum of 10 days.

Once a date is confirmed, we will send you a contract with the date(s), expected group size, applicable rates, and deposit required. We will also include our policy information [Spanish version]. We do ask that your group provides its own Event Insurance to cover the dates of your event.

Rates will vary and are based on weekend or mid-week dates and the number of meals needed. Our rates include all meals, a conference room and overnight guest rooms as needed. A complimentary beverage service and “never-empty cookie jar” are included as well.

About Our Facility

St. Francis Retreat is a full scale retreat and conference center, offering varied conference spaces, highly rated food service and dining room, overnight guest accommodations and various outdoor amenities. We are off the beaten path, on an escarpment on the side of historic Fremont Peak, and close to the equally historic city, San Juan Bautista and Old Mission San Juan Bautista.
