Education, Retreats, and Events

Discover new insights and inspiration. Our adult education offerings inspire Catholics and non-Catholics alike to be focused on God as the center of all creation. Our message, like the message of St. Francis, is rooted in the Scriptures to help us all take better care of mind, body, spirit, one another, and this world.

Programs may be held online or on-campus. For the most current offerings, please visit the Calendar of Events below. For registration questions, please contact Lora Nelson at lora@thecasa.org

Types of Adult Educational Programs
RETREATS

Retreats take place over multiple, consecutive days. On-campus retreats have the option of overnight lodging as well as space for commuters. Our retreats encourage people to explore spiritual and intellectual growth. Spiritual retreats focus on Franciscan spirituality, contemplation, personal well-being, grief and loss, and much more.

Overnight stays include single or double occupancy rooms with private bath, pool/spa, putting green, on-site dining, numerous outdoor amenities, including a desert walk and healing garden, and a variety of places to pause and reflect in a peaceful environment. Check-in is typically late Friday afternoon with check-out mid-day Sunday for most retreats. Fees generally include meals unless otherwise specified.

WORKSHOPS & CLASSES

Workshops are typically one-day commuter programs. Classes typically meet one day a week over a period of weeks for one fee.
