Center for Ministry

The diocesan Center for Ministry, located in Saginaw Township, is a first-rate conference center where gatherings, meetings and retreats take place. The Center is a great place to hold events because of its convenient location, quiet atmosphere and variety of room sizes -- from small meeting rooms to a conference space seating 500. 

The Center offers advanced audio visual equipment, overnight accommodations, delicious food and more, including a chapel and a library. Because the Center for Ministry is a not-for-profit facility, our rates are much lower than you'll find at other comparable conference centers. The  staff is here to take care of your needs, while you and your group can relax and focus on more important matters.

Parishes, schools and other organizations may book their gatherings, meetings, days of recollection or retreats by calling 989-797-6607. Private, unguided retreats are also available by calling this same number. 

Note: Bookings at the diocesan Center for Ministry can be made by other Christian denominations; the Center is not only used by Catholic groups.

Photos of the Center can be seen at the bottom of this page.
