The Grail Retreat Center is a non-profit facility owned and run by the Grail, whose members live on and maintain the 45-acre property in Cornwall-on-Hudson, NY. The Grail rents out some of its facilities, including a spacious Victorian house, the Phoenix, for retreat groups, family reunions and other large gatherings, and the smaller Hospitality House and Hermitage. The rural setting offers many places for peaceful walks and reflection, as well as access to a wide range of Hudson Valley activities.
The Grail: Women of Spirit Working for Change
The Grail Retreat Center is run by the Grail, an international women's movement committed to spiritual search, social transformation, ecological sustainability and the release of women's energy throughout the world. We are bonded in action, solidarity, and faith, working in 20 countries as individuals and Grail groups interconnecting regionally, nationally and internationally. Called by our spiritual values, the Grail envisions a world of peace, justice and renewal of the earth, brought about by women working together as catalysts for change.
The first US Grail Center was established on a 350-acre farm in Ohio in 1944. Centers in the Philadelphia, Detroit, Cincinnati, San Jose, Brooklyn and the Bronx followed. The Grail at Cornwall-on-Hudson came into existence in 1963.
Today, US Grail members are spread across the United States and several live and work at the center in Cornwall-on-Hudson.
