A Message from the Rector
The pattern of life at Marygrove is often an exciting flurry of activity followed by wonderful times of silence and peace. We are blessed by a sturdy facility that has been well-maintained, thanks to the hard work of some great priests and generations of faithful and devoted workers, as well as our dedicated patrons, whose financial and prayer support sustain us. Marygrove's long history of being a place of healing, holiness, and refreshment continues. Over the next months we have silent retreats, parish retreats, retreats for our seminarians and our clergy. We host the St. Vincent DePaul Society, Episcopalian friends, Youth Encounter, USA/Canadian Women, Wise Women, Wise Men, and so much more.
Summer and Fall are special times at Marygrove because of the beautiful weather we experience. The summer heat is usually tempered by cool breezes off the nearby bay, as it picks up faint scents of cedar through our wooded area. While I can make no promises about the absence of mosquitos, a cool summer evening in the screened gazebo makes for the sort of calm relaxation that can open the mind and heart to the voice of God.
You can phone Marygrove to request information about an upcoming retreat or to register. There is also a small registration form on the last page that can be sent through the mail. Our website has a listing of our retreats and online registration.
Thank you for your support of Marygrove. And God bless you.
May your heart be filled with the joy and peace that only the Lord can give,
