The pastoral centers in the Catholic Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston are places for outreach to individuals and groups. As an ecumenical center, we are open to communities outside of the Diocese for religious, educational or formational purposes.
We are situated on forty acres of wooded property along the Opequon Creek, in the Shenandoah Valley. The overall serenity of the property is complemented with well-maintained walking trails through the woods and along the creek, water gardens, outdoor decks and patios providing many choice places for quiet reflection.
Priest Field offers facilities for single-day and extended-stay programs:
