Sisters of St Joseph open spiritual renewal center

SPECIAL OFFER FOR HISTORIC CITY NEWS READERS

Sisters of St Joseph of St Augustine superior, Sister Jane Stoecker, informed local Historic City News reporters that the 145 year-old order has opened the doors to Villa Flora and Brown Hall for private individual and group retreats.

Villa Flora provides a place for quiet reflection, spiritual programs and conferences; while Brown Hall, originally designed as a formation house for Sisters, features several private bedrooms, gathering space and a serene courtyard.

Known as “Villa Flora-Brown Hall Renewal Center”, the buildings were constructed in 1898; across the street from the order’s convent. The Center provides parlor space, fireplaces, a conference room and stained glass windows.

The facility can accommodate groups and individuals, who can stay in one of its ten sleeping rooms with shared baths or one bedroom-office suite. Gathering space with Internet access and a kitchenette are available.

Members of the religious order will offer spiritual direction there by appointment, as well as book studies and various programs open to the public.

Call (904) 824-1752 for more information.
