The purpose of the center is well expressed in its mission statement:

"The mission of the Center is to provide a place for men and women of faith to spend time in quiet to give attention to their own interior lives. The staff of the Center seeks to offer simple but comfortable surroundings for guests to put aside their busy lives and wholeheartedly concentrate on the workings of God within... ".

For over eighty years St. Therese's Retreat Center has been an oasis of serenity and beauty on East Broad Street, Columbus, Ohio.
