This novena is a song of penitence and praise, guiding us to care for the earth and for our most vulnerable sisters and brothers. This is a series of nine reflections asking St Francis of Assisi to pray for us and our world, based on his beautiful Canticle of the Sun. Use these video prayers over nine days or at nine moments of personal prayer.
You can find more virtual contemplation and online offerings here.

We invite you to spend a personal retreat day at our facility where you will have your own Quiet Room and can take advantage of other amenities such as our beautiful grounds, peace path, chapel, and more. Enjoy our peaceful space for silent prayer or deepening of your spiritual life – a setting that allows you to reconnect with yourself or God in quiet contemplation. Write, create, pray, meditate, relax, or find your inner-voice in the gentle ambiance.
Many people long to find meaning in their lives, to discover their true selves, and to grow closer to God and others. But sometimes, it’s hard to know just where to start. Spiritual direction is a process of deep listening with a spiritual companion as you attempt to deepen your relationship with the divine and grow in your own personal spirituality.
Tau Center welcomes groups with a spiritual or religious mission to enjoy our space for private retreat where your attendees can experience a day of reflection, prayer, team sharing or other customized retreat options.
We offer a sacred space to assist individuals on their own spiritual journey – whether it is to reconnect with their inner-spirit or whether they are seeking a deeper relationship with God and the world around them. Our programs encourage an awakening of the spirit that leads to hope, healing, peace and transformation.

“Changing is not just changing the things outside of us. First of all, we need the right view that transcends all notions including of being and non-being, creator and creature, mind and spirit. That kind of insight is crucial for transformation and healing.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
