70th Anniversary Celebration!
Founded by Franciscans. Formed by Community. Forward with Faith.
Take a journey through the decades and commemorate the Casa’s past, present, and future! This festive evening features dinner, music, dancing, historical displays, community story gathering, and family-friendly activities.
Bring your appetite and dancing shoes, as we celebrate the Casa, its community members, and the continuation of our shared good work!
The Casa de Paz y Bien began as a humble Franciscan retreat center in 1951, offering the first married couples retreat in the nation. Now, as the Franciscan Renewal Center or simply “the Casa,” people of all faiths and traditions come here to experience renewal on 25 acres of picturesque desert beauty.
