Our Pastoral Land
Pastoral Centre is on over 14 acres of land, a lake, green pastureland, with walking trails. We also have an outdoor shrine of Mother Mary to help you in your reflection. Praying with the land is a wonderful way to be in touch with the Earth and its Creator. The land invites us to walk its surface prayerfully, making each step, like each breath, a prayer. Bring your walking shoes.
Pastoral Centre provides the space and quiet you need to find what you are looking for. Our dedicated staff is here to welcome you. Come on in and rest awhile.
Financial Assistance Information
Pastoral Centre, as an independent retreat house has very limited resources. It depends for its survival on what it takes in with its programs and with the generosity of its benefactors.
At this time, there are no grants available. We would ask that, if you are considering a program, retreat or workshop at Pastoral Centre, to make sure you have the resources necessary to enter into what is being offered.
