Although these measures are somewhat restrictive, this is still a wonderful time to come to our Centre to hold your meeting in our comfortable conference rooms, to host a retreat in a facility that is “away from it all” but still in a major urban centre, or to take advantage of our quiet space to refresh yourself.

Whether you are booking our facility for a special function or conference, holding a staff meeting or in-service, or participating in one of our many excellent programs and retreats, you will find that Providence Renewal Centre is a sacred space in our busy world.
