We are taking reservations for retreats for individuals and small groups. The trail and grounds are still open, but the buildings are temporarily closed to the public. This was a difficult decision as we rely heavily on retreat income and donations to sustain operations. We are sad to limit our ministry at this time, but this is a public health emergency and we must all do our part to protect our neighbors and the most vulnerable in our society. If you have been blessed with the resources and would like to support us financially during this crisis, please consider donating. We are a not-for-profit organization and your donation is tax-deductible.
We continue, as a residential community, to hold prayer and mediation times and invite you to join us live on instagram or zoom. These services and times of virtual community are a beautiful way to stay grounded and find some peace during this crisis. If you feel too cooped up, please come walk our trail. Spend some time in nature. Spend some time in silence. If you need someone to talk to, please feel free to call us. We are all in this together. If St. Francis of the Woods has been a special place for you, if you consider yourself a part of this community and yet are distant from us, know that we love you and hope to see you in person again soon.
Grace and Peace,
