Welcome Back to Saint Nicholas Ranch!
After a long hiatus, the doors of Saint Nicholas Ranch and Retreat Center in the Metropolis of San Francisco are preparing to open again. Though there are still restrictions for in-person gatherings, the Board of Saint Nicholas Ranch is now permitting small groups with limited occupancy.
“For the past sixteen months, Saint Nicholas Ranch and Retreat Center has been closed due to the pandemic. While this has put a strain on the Ranch financially, it has also allowed for some facility renovations and upgrades, thanks to the generosity of many donors,” stated His Eminence Metropolitan Gerasimos. “Now that the Ranch is able to welcome back visitors on a limited basis, we look forward to extending our signature hospitality to you once again, and resuming full operations later this year.”
Within the past two weeks, work has been completed on the Ranch Dining Hall including new floors, paint, lighting and restrooms. The Kitchen also has been deep cleaned, painted, and new lighting was installed. Additional upgraded appliances will be forthcoming in the near future.
If your family would like to visit the Ranch, or if your parish would like to offer a small retreat, please contact Ranch Executive Director Michael Pappas, [email protected] or call 559-338-2103.
The “Day at the Ranch” campaign is still going strong, with a $31,000 matching grant available until the end of May 2021. Please help us with your online donation today!
