Get away to the peace and serenity of the picturesque island of St. Lucia to relax, rejuvenate and reconnect.

Find a new psychological, physical and spiritual level at a Tropical Sabbatical.

With its campus located on the beautiful and serene Caribbean island of St. Lucia, the Franciscan Institute for Personal and Family Development offers a quiet, peaceful retreat where people of all ages can come and relax, learn and grow.

Here, we use a holistic approach to develop programmes designed to help teach and heal. Join us for a sabbatical, where you can unwind and release stress with a tropical getaway.

Special programmes are designed for singles, couples, men only, retirees and those experiencing any type of transition.

Spend time inside at the tranquil Franciscan Institute campus in beautifully appointed, wireless- enabled, air-conditioned rooms. Enjoy the outdoors along the beach and in the lush gardens surrounding the facility, hiking to waterfalls and relishing in the peace and quiet of the serene St. Lucia island oasis.
