"We have resumed welcoming guests for retreats. In keeping with restrictions and to help provide a safe environment we will have a limit of no more than 8 guests at any one time. Guests will be expected to abide by our own guidelines. We will ask those who have COVID 19 symptoms, or have recently been exposed to wait at least 14 days of clear health before coming on retreat. You all continue to be in our prayers."

Creating an Environment of Attentiveness to God.
