WEEKEND RETREATS 2017-2018 THEME: "Come and Rest in Me" (Mt 11:28)

(First timer, non-Catholic)The experience was so much more than I expected.  I feel so blessed to have shared this time in the company of Christian God Loving women.  Thank you so much for all you do.  Your faithfulness and love for Christ can be felt everywhere. (CP)

I appreciate the down to earth atmosphere at all of the talks.  For years, I avoided attending a retreat because I didn't thuink I was holy enough.  Everyone here meets you where you are at.

Nancy Clancy was a wonderful presenter/speaker.  All talks were right on theme and gave good "take aways".

The meal-time talks were very good.  Good choice of music at mealtime.

May God bless you all.  Once again I thoroughly enjoyed the time here, particularly the silence.

Thanks you for this retreat.  It was the best in my last three years

Nancy Clancy was great; enough humor and personal stuff to keep you interested.

Bro Joe always gives a sweetness & lifting up to the morning (prayer).  I feel at peace as soon as I hit the driveway.  I thank everyone who works so hard to make everything so wonderful for us.

Fred Cavaini was awsome.  Very powerful speaker. 

This was my first experience and more than met my expectations...the peacefulness was most comforting.

This is my first retreat.  I will be back!  I loved the staff and the healing service. 

I came here mired in grief, my shoulders refused to move.  By Saturday night, ...I was healed!  No more pain.  Thank You!

Thank you for all you do.  I wish more people would attend these important retreats.  How badly we need silence now more than ever !!

Loved Sally.  She's the BEST EVER!

Diane was terrific - keep her!   Diane did a great job.  Would like her next year!

You were able to help me step back into my life with a weight off my shoulders.
