Evisioning a retreat ministry

The future Retreat Center begins to take an early shape as a three-Sister team coordinated it’s early development.

An excerpt from an early statement of philosophy for the Center still holds true: “The ministry…is to share with the people of God our personal and communal prayer life as well as the environment of space and atmosphere of quiet, providing opportunities for those coming to us to deepen their union with the Lord.”

The Center utilized newly-available buildings that had been previously used by the college. Other new ministries, such as an Adult Day Care and Meals-on-Wheels, also made good use of the space that had been freed by the college’s merger.
