Things our retreatants say:

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

The time here has been healing. Truly my spirit gives thanks to our God for this time

The retreat conferences were excellent. So much food for thought and nourishment for the soul. Lots to take into prayer and on my daily faith walk.

The blend of scheduled time to free time is just right. It allows me to reflect, refresh and recharge my soul to put extra bounce in my step!
