The Grail Center at Cornwall
The Grail Center at Cornwall-on-Hudson is located 50 miles north of New York City, in the heart of the Hudson River Valley. The Center covers forty-five acres of meadow and forest and provides a view of Storm King Mountain.
The Center includes retreat facilities, a residence for Grail staff, an organic garden, lawns and wooded trails.
The Grail Center at Cornwall-on-Hudson is an expression of the Grail. Through our life and work, we seek to embody the Grail vision.
Our spiritually diverse community shares a simple life style with times for celebration, discussion, meditation, and prayer. Our community includes local staff and friends who participate in our ongoing projects, as well as Grail members from the Northeastern United States who often join in activities at the Center.
Programs and Workshops
The Cornwall Grail Center provides retreat and educational opportunities open to the public on a broad range of topics from the environment to spirituality, political issues, the arts, and personal growth. Since 1979, we have offered support, and training to women who work for social justice, global awareness, and community development.
Retreat Center Facilities
Our largest house is The Phoenix, an attractively furnished Victorian manor with four to five meeting areas, a large kitchen, a breakfast room, a dining room, and twelve bedrooms. It offers a tranquil setting conducive for small groups of 15 to 24 people to come together to create their own seminars, retreats, workshops, or events.
The Hermitage is a small private cabin, suitable for a single visitor. Nestled among the trees, the Hermitage is located at a distance that provides solitude while also allowing easy access to the Grail staff house should an emergency arise. It is an ideal place to pray, meditate, think, study, write — or just be.
