The Hermitage

Get away from it all and reconnect with God

If you’re looking for a spot to get away and just be with God on a one-to-one basis, or if you’re looking for a private location where you can still receive Spiritual Direction, this is the perfect solution. Spiritual Direction includes meeting with a priest or lay spiritual director for about one hour per day. Typically you will have an opportunity to talk over whatever keeps you from being the person God intended. You will often be directed to specific prayers, meditations, spiritual reading, etc. You will also have the opportunity for individual confession.
