Chaminade House

Retreat Center Renovation

On October 2nd 1984 the Chaminade Retreat Center was completed. As time went on many changes were made in the mission of the House. Following the dictum of Father Chaminade, It was decided that a renovation was needed more fitting to the new “Signs of the Times”. The Korean Retreat Center would be remodeled as a Senior Center called “Chaminade House”. (노인전문요양원)
