Mission Statement
 
 At IL Ritiro Franciscan Retreat Center,
we believe our relationship with God,
ourselves, and all creation
is rooted in a God
who loves and creates us.
In the Spirit of Saints Francis
and Clare of Assisi,
IL Ritiro offers a place of hospitality
and respect for all people of faith.
We create an environment
that fosters a sense of connection with God
through creation, beauty, ample time 
and space for prayer and contemplation..
