Notre Dame Spiritual Center Hosts Meetings and Retreats for Businesses, Organizations and Groups

 The Notre Dame Spiritual Center, atop Shaker Hill in Alfred, offers a peaceful and comfortable setting for groups seeking a place to hold retreats, meetings or other events.

The Spiritual Center is part of the York County Shelter Programs’ campus. For many years the center was owned and managed by our Shaker Hill neighbors, the Brothers of Christian Instruction. Several years ago YCSP took over the management and operation of the center. Monies raised goes back to YCSP.

We attract companies, organizations, church groups, educators, crafters, spiritual and wellness groups who rent our spaces for varying lengths of time. We can accommodate up to 80 people overnight.

We offer affordable on-site dining options, featuring customized meal plans.

We are nestled among 300 acres of natural beauty, with woods and trails nearby. This site is also historic, as it was once home to a Shaker community. The Alfred Shaker Museum is just a few minutes’ walk from the center.

Other highlights of our location: we are just a few miles from Bunganut Lake, and less than 40 minutes to southern Maine beaches. The Portland jetport is just 45 minutes away.
