HISTORY & DESCRIPTION
Providence Renewal Centre is a retreat and conference centre established by the Sisters of Providence in 1983. It is part of Providence Centre Complex, which was erected in 1965 as headquarters for the Sisters of Providence for Western Canada. The wings in which Providence Renewal Centre is located formally provided accommodation for Sisters from out of town and for classes for Sisters of Providence in formation.
Today Providence Renewal Centre is a vibrant retreat and conference that is utilized by people of various backgrounds, cultures and religions. At its core, Providence Renewal Centre continues to be animated by the spirit of compassion of the Sisters of Providence and their strong belief in Gospel values.
Keeping with the core of our foundation, Providence Renewal Centre also offers program and retreat opportunities including spiritual direction, with a focus on personal and spiritual growth. Our private retreat wing (Sacred Space) can accommodate up to five people and offers a shared kitchen and laundry facility for longer stays and sabbaticals. We have five parlors for those wishing to come to Providence Renewal Centre on a day retreat.
Providence Renewal Centre is a Sacred Space in a Busy World ready to welcome you.
Located on 16 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds in south west Edmonton, we have an outdoor labyrinth, summer fountain and sitting area, and manicured walkways.
With over 50 bedrooms (accommodating up to 70 people), a private chapel, private dining room, Sacred Space retreat area and various meeting rooms accommodating up to 300 people, Providence Renewal Centre has become a popular place for groups and organizations to host conferences, meetings and seminars. Our meeting rooms are bright and spacious; we offer free parking and an abundance of coffee and beverages. Audio visual and presentation equipment can be arranged along with buffet meals.
