Spring and Fall Newsletters

Each year, we send out two (Spring and Fall) email and snail mail newsletters that contain a message from Father Tom, news about the Center and the Community, and a list of our current needs.

You can read some of our past newsletters below. If you would like to subscribe, please Join Our Mailing List by entering your email address below. We’d love to send you our upcoming issues!

Over the past couple of years, thanks to your generous support, we were able to paint the exterior of two hermitages (St. Gerard and Marie Celeste), make extensive plumbing repairs to one of our main buildings, install a new double oven and a counter-top stove in our kitchen, replace our large commercial freezer, replace the roof and install a heat pump in the St. Joseph hermitage, and purchase new books and materials for our library.

Current Needs

• New computer for our main office
• Air-conditioning unit for our library
• Continue refurbishing the guest rooms
