A sacred place, set apart.

About St. Michael's

The Franciscan Friars of St. Michael's Retreat together with the Anglican, Evangelical Lutheran and Roman Catholic communities successfully operate the Retreat Centre through an Interchurch Board. This partnership is a first in ecumenical retreat ministry.

St. Michael's is located on 160 hillside acres near Calgary, AB, overlooking the Bow Valley.  The walking trails, prayer stations and the carefully chosen location of the rock labyrinth allow and encourage quiet, mediative walks.
