Welcome to Villa Maria Education and Spirituality Center

PLEASE READ THE LETTER BELOW IN REGARDS TO HOW VILLA MARIA IS RESPONDING TO THE CORONAVIRUS THREAT.

Villa Maria Education and Spirituality Center (VMESC) is located between New Castle, Pennsylvania and Youngstown, Ohio on the picturesque grounds of Villa Maria Community Center, home of the Sisters of the Humility of Mary. The woodlands, meadows, pond, outdoor shrines, nature walkways, herb garden, working farm, and the lived faith of the resident sisters provide a setting where the whole person, body-mind-spirit, can be nourished.

Our mission: VMESC provides and promotes educational and spiritual experiences in a unique setting for people of all ages, faiths, and economic status.

Our vision: VMESC is a sacred setting where God's grace is nurtured and abundant life unfolds. We seek to inspire lifelong learning and growth through relationships with God, others, self, and Earth.

Our program offerings include retreats and other spiritual growth opportunities for adults and youth. We are also delighted to provide space and hospitality to hosted groups for meetings, conferences, and other events.
