"Come away with me into a desert place . . and rest awhile." (Mark 6:31)
Located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan
Our Summer/Fall Retreat Catalog is late getting to you this year. I want to take this opportunity to thank all who support Marygrove, either by coming on retreat, giving generous donations, and most especially prayers.
If you haven't been to Marygrove in a while, please consider coming on a Parish Retreat this year. A Silent Directed Retreat might be what you need. Perhaps the Wise men and Wise women retreat. You want to really prepare for Christmas this year? Then come to Marygrove for our overnight in December: "Something Wonderful is About to Happen: Advent Retreat." Don't let this year pass without making a good retreat.
It's ironic that Marygrove is such a busy place; when so many people come here to escape the busyness of life! All of us at Marygrove are dedicated to keep this a peaceful place where you can rest. We'll keep this a place of beauty, where you can clear your mind and think through all the difficult decisions you face. We'll keep this a place of hospitality, where you will feel encouraged in good humor, and welcomed as friends. Most importantly, we'll keep this a holy place where you can pray, be guided toward Christ, and be strengthened in the Faith.
Again, thank you for supporting Marygrove. I know there are many good places one can make a retreat. Thanks for choosing Marygrove!

SAINT VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY RETREAT: July 31- August 2
Also, please consider the Eight Day Silent Retreat Aug 9-16. There is a Three Day Silent directed retreated in November as well. You can find out more about our retreats from the link on the left.
May God bless you and keep you safe.
