Retreat Center Blossoms in NE Pennsylvania

Holy Transfiguration Retreat Center is nestled away in Dalton, Pennsylvania, just minutes from downtown Scranton. It is enthroned on more than 300 sprawling acres, and includes a lake, beautiful trees and rolling hills ideal for outdoor meditation.

In June 2013, the Diocesan Assembly of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church identified the need for a retreat center. After three years of searching, and countless visits to multiple locations in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, the Diocesan Council found an ideal property. 

The retreat center includes a chapel, library, conference rooms, classrooms and offices. There are two dormitory wings to accommodate over 180 guests, and a gymnasium that will comfortably seat 800 people. 

The center is available for retreats, workshops, youth camps, on-going classes, weddings and conferences. Everything needed for a successful event is housed under one roof.

Location: 1000 Seminary Rd., Dalton, PA. For booking information, please call Mary De Angelis at 570-563 1669 or 973-998-1749 (cell), or email [email protected] For more information, please visit or
