Newly Formed Retreat Center in Brookland, PA
Does your group need a sacred meeting space or a location for workshops? Are you searching for a quiet place to expand your creativity? A place to get away from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life?
Located in the northern climes of Potter County, All Saints Retreat Center in Brookland, PA, is the perfect space. As part of the Shaped by Faith initiative, the Diocese is exploring the conversion of All Saints Episcopal Church, Brookland into a new small Retreat House with a beautiful Victorian stone chapel for meditation and prayer. Shaped by Faith is a three-part initiative to create a Diocese best shaped to serve God’s mission in Central Pennsylvania and challenges parishes to create opportunities and ways to engage in the community.
There are 20 acres of land wanting sheep, just like the English Cotswolds. A recorded historic spot – the expansive property features a retreat house, chapel, and churchyard. Just a “stone’s throw away” is the Oak Hall Bed & Breakfast. You can build a campfire. Walk the grounds. Rock on the front porch. Write, knit, think, read, study, and pray – alone or in groups. In the area are many opportunities for outdoor activities, especially the Pine Creek “Grand Canyon” of Pennsylvania. Plenty of hiking, fishing, hunting, and star gazing. All Saints Retreat Center is the perfect location for a church group planning meeting, scouts for a camp-out, student environmental science projects, arts & crafts workshops, or a quiet retreat.
The retreat center offers overnight sleeping accommodation for up to 10 people, a large meeting/dining room, a well-supplied kitchen, and a library. During this exploratory phase fees are not charged, though donations are accepted. Meals can be arranged for a cost with a variety of menu options offered.
All Saints Retreat Center is an active ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Central PA. We are located in Brookland, PA, 3 miles up Rte. 449 between Galeton and Coudersport.
