The Franciscan Renewal Center (also known as “The Casa”) is a spiritual oasis for renewal, rest, and prayer. We provide space for meetings, overnight stays, private and directed retreats, adult education programs, conference rooms for nonprofit groups, and licensed behavioral health counseling. The Casa is a quick 20-minute drive from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. Nestled between majestic Camelback and Mummy Mountains, it’s located on 25 acres of beautiful, quiet desert landscape in Scottsdale, Arizona. The facilities include over 13,000 square feet of flexible, technologically supported meeting and conference rooms as well as 70 double occupancy rooms, 8 single occupancy rooms, and 4 handicap accessible rooms for overnight stays. Our guest rooms are designed without phones or TVs in order to maximize time for quiet, peaceful reflection and renewal. The dining room, which seats up to 150 to 175 guests, can provide buffet style meals for your breakfast, lunch, and dinners so you can better focus on your meeting or retreat.The Casa is a non-profit and active religious community of the Order of Friars Minor — a worldwide Franciscan family that follows in the footsteps of Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi. Its base is the Franciscan Province of Saint Barbara, in Oakland, California which works with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Phoenix. The Conventual Church of Our Lady of the Angels on the property offers daily and Sunday masses and a vibrant family catechesis program.

For almost twenty years, the Casa has been reducing its ecological footprint. Eco-friendly measures include the installation of solar panels on our friary and new Assisi guest lodge, weather stripping, specially designed "styrofoam" cups for guests and campus-wide collection of recyclable materials.In the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi and with our Care for Creation ministry, we look for new ways to reduce our carbon footprint and live in greater harmony with the environment.
