Oldenburg Franciscan Center (OFC) is a supported ministry of the Sisters of St. Francis in Oldenburg, Indiana. Rooted in the Gospel, our retreat ministry provides a nurturing environment and resources for all who seek to grow in relationship with God. Through our Sisters’ presence and programs, we foster the Franciscan values of peace-making, reconciliation, and reverence for Earth and all people.
The Oldenburg Franciscan Center is located in Southeastern Indiana’s historic “Village of Spires”, a town founded by German settlers in the 1830s. Tucked away in a wooded valley flowing with streams and bordered by farms just North of I-74 between Indianapolis and Cincinnati, the Center offers an easy and economic retreat for those drawn to the beauty of nature, the quiet of the country, recollection in faith, and a prayerful place to find peace.
