Religious and Spiritual Groups
Religious and spiritual groups of all denominations are welcome at Presentation Center. A variety of beautiful worship areas, both indoors and out, makes meetings and services convenient and inspirational. Groups come with their own program or agenda, and we work behind the scenes to help you reach your retreat goals.
Because education is a key component of the mission of Presentation Center, young people are very welcome. School and youth groups find it the perfect place to foster personal growth in students. The natural surroundings also offer immersion in environmental and ecological awareness. We are sensitive to the financial realities of schools and therefore offer very attractive pricing for school and youth groups.
Faculty and staff groups also find Presentation Center the perfect venue for their retreats, with well-equipped meeting rooms of various sizes, cozy rooms for social gathering and discourse, and both outdoor and indoor recreational options.
Women’s groups are especially comfortable at our beautiful mountain retreat in the redwoods. We provide a safe and sacred haven for women to share their experiences – whether those experiences are spiritual, artistic, academic or simply personal.
Conferences and Workshops
More inviting than a hotel, and more cost-effective than comparable facilities. The flexible configuration of our facilities offers the privacy to fully concentrate on your particular goals.
The professional and business organizations that make use of Presentation Center’s unique location appreciate the close and convenient proximity to the center of Silicon Valley (just 20 minutes from Mineta San Jose International Airport) coupled with being removed from TV, faxes and email.
We provide wireless internet access for guests in all public areas and conference rooms. Every conference room also comes equipped with a flip chart easel and pad. CD players, digital projector and sound equipment are also available.
For out-of-session times, we provide a wide variety of recreational opportunities from hiking on our own trails or in the Mid-Peninsula Open Space Preserve, to sports, to indoor games and cozy conversation areas. The coffee room in our Pueblo Building is open around the clock, and, upon request, the Cavanaugh Dining Room in the Welcoming Center will remain open until 9:00 PM for people to work informally in small groups, relax with colleagues, and enjoy complimentary beverages.
