About The Center
The Catholic Conference Center was originally built in 1988 by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Charlotte. Originally developed as a support facility for the programs, parishes, and offices of the diocese, the beautiful facilities and pastoral setting soon attracted many other individuals and organizations looking for a unique place to get away to a perfect setting for an event, retreat, and training.
