Kirkridge Retreat Center 2495 Fox Gap Road Bangor PA 18013 Janet Lewis 610-588-1793

Kirkridge is a place
to be,
and to become
a people of hope,
compassion, justice, and service.

Since 1942, Kirkridge Retreat and Study Center has provided a place for rest and renewal to pilgrims along life’s journey. Our retreats, our hospitality, our gorgeous vistas, and our sacred grounds have blessed, and continue to bless, countless lives.

We are located on a ridge of the beautiful Kittatinny Ridge of Northeast Pennsylvania, overlooking the Delaware Valley. You can say that the Kirkridge community is, too, now standing on our own precipice, as we look back on our over 75 years of service. For the past 75 years, we have served a thriving Christian and interfaith community. Looking ahead, we plan on serving an even wider community of people of good faith, no faith, and interfaith – and providing safe harbor to all.
As we work to embrace a wider community, our spirit of excellent hospitality is more important than ever. Our historic motto of “picket and pray” has now extended itself “to protect, tend, and embrace.” From the peak of the ridge to the clear waters in the valley below, the new century calls for stewardship, nurturing, and embracing inner stability with outer sustainability.

We invite you, as pilgrims in search of a balanced life, to help us nurture the ground on which we stand and the people with whom we interact each day to build a safe, sustainable future.

The Watershed Coalition of the Lehigh Valley serves as an umbrella organization for community watershed associations in Lehigh, Northampton, and surrounding counties. The Coalition's mission is to preserve and enhance watersheds throughout the region. It pursues its mission through outreach and education to the public, resource and information sharing among its community watershed organization members, and advocacy on key issues critical to water resource health in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding region. Most recently, the Coalition initiated Pennsylvania's first Master Watershed Steward Program, which serves to train ordinary citizens to be effective volunteers in local water resource protection.
