"It seems strange to say, but what can help modern man find the answers to his own mystery and the mystery of him in whose image he is created, is silence, solitude -- in a word, the desert. Modern man needs these things more than the hermits of old." Catherine Doherty

2012 "wish list"

 A series of difficulties makes it time again to post our,
Retreat Center "wish list."

Last time we did this two much needed items were donated and as of right now we could use help again.

Our family vehicle, a 2008 Chevy Uplander which we used for retreat operations needs a new transmission, making it not only difficult to transport our family but also retreaters.

So the new wish list for anyone out there who can help is...

$3000 to install a used transmission or a used passenger van with front wheel drive or four wheel drive.
