Arnold Hall Conference Center – Celebrating 50 years!
Arnold Hall Conference Center opened in 1964, thanks to the impulse and Faith of Fr. Joseph Musquiz , who came to the U.S. in 1949 to begin Opus Dei activities here, and who was dedicated to the initiation and growth of several apostolic undertakings.
Arnold Hall is privately owned and operated by Arnold Hall, inc. a non-profit organization. Previously this peaceful, multi-acre site was home to Arnold School, a private secondary school.
The Conference Center hosts retreats, workshops, classes, conferences and other activities. The Spiritual activities offered at Arnold Hall Conference Center are entrusted to Opus Dei, a personal prelature of the Catholic Church. Thus, the activities held at Arnold Hall reflect a Christian outlook on life and culture. Through a wide variety of programs – men and women-in any state of life, are inspired to live christian virtues in their everyday professional and family lives. People from throughout the U.S. and from other countries come to learn, reflect and get closer to God.
Special emphasis is given to youth programs and to awaken in them a sense of social responsibility. In the words of Pope Francis in WYD 2013, Rio, “Dear young people, please, don’t be observers of life, but get involved. Don’t be observers, but immerse yourself in the reality of life, as Jesus did”. Do not be afraid to bring the wisdom of faith to every aspect of social life”
Arnold Hall Conference Center is dedicated to providing a safe educational environment for those who participate in its activities, especially all minors. It does not tolerate any sexual or physical abuse on the part of staff, volunteers, or participants, including behavior that is objectively intimidating, either physically or verbally. Also, staff and volunteers do not provide any illegal substances to the students nor permit their use. Every adult staff or volunteer submits to a background check and commits to follow a set of behavioral guidelines (http://www.ftc.gov/os/statutes/2summary.htm)
If you are aware of any abusive behavior, please report it immediately to the Director of the Center (activity). The Director of the Center (activity) in conjunction with the Center’s Board will promptly investigate and resolve any such complaints or reports. When necessary, the Director will inform the Director of the Prelature of Opus Dei.
