The Franciscan Renewal Center – also known as the Casa – is a very lively Roman Catholic parish in the USA. It is located in Paradise Valley in Scottsdale, a district of Phoenix, Arizona. The centre adopts a religious and holistic approach, which it also expresses, for example, in its counselling of families or people in difficult situations in life. In recent years, the Casa has experienced significant growth, which means the old building has since become far too small to provide its many members with sufficient space. For this reason, the community decided to build a new one.
