The Pallottine Missionary Sisters broke ground on the Pallottine Renewal Center in 1968. The building was constructed to serve as a novitiate and formation house for incoming sisters as well as a residence for the retired sisters. With the changes of the Second Vatican Council, the Sisters realized that they would not have the number of novices they anticipated. As St. Vincent taught that we should use “any and all means possible” to share the Good News, the Sisters discerned that the facility could serve as a retreat center where all people could come to grow in faith and sense of mission. The Pallottine Renewal Center opened its doors in 1969 as a retreat center and has welcomed people from nearly all ages, backgrounds, and nationalities for retreat over the past decades.
