About Us


Our Mission

The Center of Renewal is a community of service.
In the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, we provide hospitality,
promote spiritual growth, and foster the development of people.
Individuals and groups are welcome to this environment of peace and beauty.

Volunteers at the Center of Renewal help with mailings, welcome guests arriving for retreats, handle refreshments and direct guests for special events, help organize storage areas, make photocopies of fliers, prepare mailings, answer phones, maintain our gardens, and more.

If you are interested in applying for consideration as a volunteer to further advance our retreat center ministry, please contact Dr. Nancy P. Askins, Executive Director, at [email protected] or call (716) 754-7376, Ext. 1.

Thank you!
