Peace and Blessings to you!
The retreat house has moved forward in our plan to reopen.  The windmill is now available and has welcomed its first retreatant.  We have welcomed our first very small hosted group.  Over these next months, we will continue to plan for how we can successfully offer some in house programming as well as our virtual offerings.  In the meantime, please feel free to come walk our grounds during this time of reopening.

If you have questions, we can be contacted at (518) 393-4169 or​​
