Welcome to our website!

Holy Spirit Center is a resource of the Archdiocese of Anchorage located in the foothills of the Chugach Mountains overlooking the scenic Anchorage bowl and beyond. The Center collaborates with the Archdiocese and parishes as well as ecumenical groups to provide spiritual direction, individual and group retreats, spirituality workshops, conferences and programs in ministry formation both at the Center and in parishes. The facility includes a central retreat house, dining room, conference rooms, modest housing for guests and access to the lovely Resurrection Chapel and Stations of the Cross nature walk. These properties are also available as conference facilities for non-profit groups.


It is with great sadness that we share with you that our friend and co-worker, Tom Embrey, passed from this life at approximately 12:30pm on Tuesday, June 7, 2016.

Condolences may be sent to his sister, Jean Hull, in care of Holy Spirit Center.

Memorial services will be held later this summer at Amazing Grace Lutheran Church and Holy Spirit Center. Specific information will be posted here when we have it.

Our first impression of the Holy Spirit Center was one of great amazement. While attending our first retreat there, we were overwhelmed with solitude and inner peace. It is truly a place to focus on prayer, recollection and worship. How wonderful to have a dedicated facility in our area that provides us the opportunity to adore and learn about our Lord!
