Clare's Corner

I read a reflection recently by Fr. John Czyzynsky, S C J , on prayer. It held much wisdom, and I'd like to share a bit of it with you.

Guidelines for prayer might be: -SHOW UP-  -SHUT UP-  -SPEAK UP-  -LISTEN UP-  -GIVE UP-

Donation Increase

Due to our rising costs it is necessary for us to raise our suggested weekend donations. Beginning Sept. 1, 2006 the donation requested for a weekend retreat will be $150. For an overnight only on the weekend: $75. This is in line with other retreat houses in the nation. The donation for a weekday will be raised to $70. The actual cost is double that; donations must cover the remainder.

Mary and Clare with Black Cart #2

John Deere Has a New Helper

Drawn by our trusty John Deere, a black cart for hauling various contents is an essential piece of machinery around here.

After 20 years of hard labor, the original Black Cart #1 had carried its last load. Clare and Mary (photo at the right) enjoy the fruits of their handiwork after assembling its successor, Black Cart #2!


Consider bringing your prayer group, R C I A team, or a group of faith-filled friends to experience the peace and renewal that so many individuals experience here. Bring your own director or know that a staff director is available. Tailor the time to fit your need for silence, sharing, prayer, and input. Check our web site for options available. Contact Sheila Avery, secretary, for information.
