NURTURE YOUR SOUL ON A SERENE ISLAND RETREAT

Welcome to the Franciscan Institute for Personal & Family Development

The Franciscan Institute, a ministry of the Sisters of the Sorrowful Mother, is dedicated to promoting a culture of peace where right relationships and community are nurtured in the Fransiscan tradition of compassion, moderation, simplicity and reverance for all creation. We offer programmes for youth and adults on-site in St. Lucia, Grenada and Trinidad, or off-site at your location. Our campus on the beautiful and serene island of St. Lucia offers a quite, peaceful retreat where people of all ages can relax, heal, learn and grow.
