Welcome to Pantasaph Franciscan Friary.
On this site you will find information about the Retreat Centre, the National Shrine of St Pio and St David's Church, all of which are located at the Franciscan Friary here in Pantasaph in north Wales.
All the events we run can be found by clicking on the menu of month names near the top of the page which is intended to give you quick and easy access to the information you require.
You can also see more specific details by using the menu on the left. God Bless!
In the early part of 2013, the new Retreat Centre facilities will come into use. Due to the changes here at Pantasaph, the Retreat Centre will occupy two self-contained facilities accommodating 30 and 20 people (approximately) in each. 'Camerino', the part that many of our previous visitors will have experienced, will be the larger of the two and 'La Verna' (formally the Friary) will accommodate around 20 persons. This affords us an opportunity to encourage new and diverse groups and ministries that would otherwise not be able to use Pantasaph, and benefit from the unique experience of this special place. So if you have a particular group, or apostolate that would consider a residential retreat, and have been discouraged because of cost, or lack of number, don't be discouraged, contact the Retreat Centre office at Pantasaph for more information.
