The Entrance to St. Anthony’s
Through these stone gates, you’ll find peace beyond understanding.
Front Entrance, St. Francis Statue in Forefront
The front view of St. Anthony’s is breath taking and often is the first sense for retreatants that they have arrived at home.
The “cloister” hallways are paved with nearly a century of prayers.
From morning and evening prayers, daily Mass and adoration, our chapel is a good place to sit with God.

Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto
Made possible by retreatants in the 1920, the grotto is a popular place for guests to discover, ponder and pray. Not wheelchair accessible.
Stations of the Cross
Our Stations of the Cross twine their way through the woods by the pond. During the summer months, benches are placed by each station for pilgrims to stop and meditate on the Passion of our Lord.
You’ll find many trails tucked in through the woods. Stop by the front office for a map before you go exploring!
Pond and Dam
During the non-frozen months, retreatants love to stand by the damn and meditate with the rush of water. The still surface of the pond is ideal for reflecting and reflection.
Our gazebo is tucked behind our solar panel array and stands as a great place to sit and pray without bugs. Nearby is a statue with an angel and child.
St. Mary’s Courtyard
The largest of our three courtyards, St. Mary’s Courtyard is lush with flowers and many varieties of plants during the growing season. A Marian shrine adds a focus for prayer.
St. Francis Garden
Located to the left of the front of the building, our St. Francis garden is a lovely spot to swing and admire God’s creation.
Solar Panel Array
A new addition to St. Anthony’s landscape in 2017, our solar panel array helps our energy efficiency and is a great expression of our Franciscan values.
