Catholic high schools and parish youth groups qualify for special pricing thanks to the generousity of our benefactors. Click here for more information.
Lawrence Lodge rentals include use of the chapel but do not include linens & housekeeping (groups often bring their own sheets and towels and clean the building(s) before leaving). However, all of these services are available for an additional fee.
We provide meals for Catholic high schools and parish youth groups. Other groups usually cook their own meals in the snack kitchen at no extra cost. Some groups combine this with a few carry-out meals from the local restaurants. Please note: the main kitchen at Lawrence Lodge, as well as the Lodge's dish room, are not available to groups preparing their own meals. The main kitchen is used only by DeSales Center staff for Catholic youth ministry.
Unfortunately, we are no longer able to offer every group food service. If you are not a Catholic school or parish youth group and would like meals prepared, please contact Fr. Ken McKenna or consider renting Holley Institute's Family Residence (pls. contact Maryann).
To reserve Lawrence Lodge, Vineyard Cabin, and Bailey Hall, print the Registration Form, fill it out, and mail it to us with your deposit. Use the Hermitage link for hermitage reservations and the Carl's Family Village link for Village reservations.
