ount Saint Francis Hermitage is a Roman Catholic retreat center run by the Franciscans of the Immaculate in Endicott, NY. With 150 acres of rugged terrain in the hills of Upstate New York straddling the border of Endicott, NY and Maine, NY. Mt. St. Francis offers an ideal place of prayer and solitude for religious and faithful alike. Here one can be alone with God in silence; here those who are living under pressure can find time away from it all; those who are worn out by the burdens of daily life can draw near to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary in prayer. Mt. St. Francis is open for prayerful visits from dawn until dusk. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is offered daily at the Oratory located at the Marian Friary (see Mass Schedule). The peaceful surroundings of God’s creation afford everyone an atmosphere of quiet recollection.
