The Bergamo Center

The Bergamo Center for Lifelong Learning was founded in 1967 by the Society of Mary (Marianists) religious order. Bergamo was named after the childhood home of Pope John XXIII. Originally established strictly as a retreat house, Bergamo grew over the years to become a full-service retreat and conference center. Bergamo resides on the 150-acre campus of Mount Saint John, home to many Marianist of Ohio and numerous other Marianist projects.  Click here to learn more about the Bergamo Center.
