Comments from a recent visitors......
Just wanted to thank you for a beautiful, spiritual day! The feedback has been very positive. This was my 2nd visit and just as special - if not more so. We appreciated your attention and the availability of Reconciliation and Mass.

Just wanted to say how wonderful Saturday's retreat was with Fr. Justin Cinnante. All of it was wonderful...the food, the conferences, the Mass...just all of it. Fr. Justin is truly special and gifted.
It was not my first time there or my first time attending a day of reflection...I'm never disappointed. In past years I have come with other members of the Ladies of La Salette Sodality from Phoenicia, NY as well as on my own.
Thank you for all your good work.
