Programs and Events
The Christine Center offers persons of all faiths useful ways of participating in conscious spiritual living. Here you will find opportunity for meditation and learning that is grounded in contemplative community, in deep hospitality, and in holy silence – each moment an occasion to experience the oneness within, and with all of creation.
The passionate mystic, St. Francis, modeled harmony with the earth and spoke to all of God’s great goodness and love. Addressing himself directly to the soul of the seeker, he invited joyous participation in an integrated and compassionate life. Similarly, the Christine Center is a place to meet God, to be refreshed in body and soul, and to come home to your best and holy self.
The Christine Center is a Spirituality Center firmly rooted in the Catholic mystical tradition. Grounded in Franciscan spirituality, it is deeply respectful of all spiritual paths and encouraging of all those who seek to know God. As a spirituality center our programs and services embrace persons of all spiritual paths.
There are several programs that allow an individual to become part of the Christine Center Community. These are: the Sabbatical Program, the work/study program, the work exchange program, and the volunteer program. We welcome you to join one of these programs and experience the benefits of living at the Christine Center.
Through these various programs individuals can become part of something bigger than themselves and can grow spiritually in the company of other seekers. Now, more then ever, persons from all walks of life are seeking ways in which to participate in the healing that is needed in our world. In the spirit of St. Francis who expressed a deep love of creation, we place equal emphasis on mind, body, and spirit. Such careful integration brings both peace and great joy, the hallmarks of a balanced and enlightened contemplative awareness.
As part of the experience, each person is welcome to engage in the inner work of self-awareness and personal growth. Spiritual Direction is also available.
