Individual and Group Bookings
Mount St. Francis Retreat Centre offers individuals and groups an inviting yet simple facility, nutritious and tasty home-cooked meals that can accommodate most dietary restrictions, expansive grounds and a peaceful setting. We have 46 bedrooms, three with double beds and four with 2 single beds. Washrooms are shared. There is also one large conference room (accommodating up to 55) and one smaller meeting room (accommodating up to 15). (Please note that the room capacities have been affected by the COVID-19 protocols established by Alberta Health Services. We are currently limited to 20 persons in our conference room and dining room and 15 outside guests in the chapel.)
Please contact our office for more information or to arrange a booking: 403.932.2012 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Private overnight retreats: Typically, private overnight retreats are booked between Tuesday-Thursday when there are no other events taking place that would disrupt the quiet. It may be possible to accommodate a private retreatant on a weekend depending on availability of rooms and the type of program being offered that weekend (some outside groups are closed or are not in silence). Private retreatants may also request to speak with a member of the retreat team for spiritual accompaniment.
Suggested contribution: $100.00 per day which includes a continental breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Private day retreats: Individuals are welcome to come to the Mount for a time of quiet reflection. We ask that you phone ahead in case there is a group on site that provides little space for quiet.
Suggested contribution for the full day, including lunch: $30.00; $40.00 with a private room.
Group bookings: Mid-week bookings are accommodated more easily. Weekend overnight availability is typically booked well in advance. Our per/person costs are:
- $110.00 per day, including overnight stay, a hot breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee bar and snacks.
- $35.00 for day use of the facility, including morning muffins, lunch and coffee bar.
- $30.00 for evening Twilight Retreat, including dinner and coffee bar.
The cost includes use of any meeting room or AV equipment.
Student groups: Mount St. Francis offers wide open spaces for schools to organize their own outdoor retreat and programs for students. While we can comfortably accommodate 55 people indoors, there is an open-air outdoor pavilion that will seat approximately 175 people theatre-style and bleachers. Rather than a per/person rate for use of the facility and grounds, we charge a $100.00 flat rate to schools for student groups.
Lunch options, including fresh veggies, chips, drink and dessert:
- Hotdogs lunch – $8.25/per person
- Hamburger lunch – $9.00/per person
- Chicken pasta – $9.00/per person (cannot be selected with hotdogs or hamburgers). This option is only available for groups under 55 eating indoors.
Those with special dietary needs are asked to provide what they require to supple-ment our menu. We cannot offer special individual meals for larger student groups.
Youth retreats: Mount St. Francis provides a special rate for groups organizing student and youth overnight retreats. $75.00 per day in-cluding overnight stay, hot breakfast, lunch and dinner.
