“Slept very well in my room. The liturgies were healing and my soul is restored. I feel forgiven. Maybe now I can be more compassionate to others and less judgmental.”

The liturgies were meaningful, well chosen – Catholic and spiritual; the homilies added more insight to the retreat theme. I felt the Anointing of the Sick helped me.

“Debbie is a keeper. She’s very down-to-earth and I can relate to her conferences.”
