Donegal Property Available for Retreats, Relaxation

Schedule your getaway today!  The diocese welcomes groups and individuals to book a stay at the Donegal Clergy House, a modern resort house on 160 acres just a stone's throw away from Lake Donegal.  The house is within a short half-hour drive to popular Laurel Highlands attractions including Fallingwater, Idlewild Park and Soak Zone, Fort Ligonier, Seven Springs, Laurel Ridge, Hidden Valley, and the Connellsville bike trails.

The four-season, two-level house is fully furnished, with linens, blankets, and cookware, and a cleaning service readies it for each use.  A three-season barn on the property can serve as a picnic shelter.

It is available at very affordable rates.  Clergy, parish staff, and church groups have first priority on bookings and can schedule up to a year in advance.  Parish members who are seeking a vacation site may schedule up to four months in advance.

Please be aware of these other important details:

  • Due to water restrictions, the maximum overnight capacity is 8-10 individuals.
  • There is no water at the barn, and sanitary facilities must be rented to accommodate larger groups.

If youth groups are looking for service projects, we would love help in re-establishing some of the hiking trails on the property.

Contact Marlene Rihn at or 412-721-0853 for details and reservations.
