Saint Joseph Campus

As Carmelites, our charism is to promote a deeper spiritual life among God’s people. St. Joseph’s Campus provides a quality place where people of all ages and walks of life can draw closer to their faith. Focused on deepening an individual’s union with God, the campus is available to priests, religious, and lay organizations wishing to teach and evangelize God’s people.

The campus also focuses on providing support for the daily challenges faced in today’s world through basic courses and programs. The campus strives to spread the Good News and deepen knowledge of the Catholic faith.

We invite all Principals, Directors of Religious Education, Teachers and Catechists to consider hosting their workshop, seminar, meeting, inservice, or First Communion, Confirmation, eighth-grade, or one-day high school retreat with us.  Rooms are available for workshops, retreats, days of prayer, and conferences. Saint Joseph Campus is also available for secular events that are approved by the Carmelite Sisters. Each room comes with an adjoining garden for break-out sessions, prayer and meditation.

Please contact us using the information below to learn about renting our entire facility, one room, or any combination of rooms, the prices for one-time events and recurring groups, our catering options, and the assistance of a Carmelite Sister in giving a presentation for your group.
