Dear Friends of Eastern Point Retreat House,

“For my house of prayer shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.” (Is:56)

With these beautiful words from Isaiah, Randy Sachs, SJ Jesuits Superior at EPRH led us all into a prayerful and joyful rededication of Eastern Point Retreat House on Saturday, November 12th.

All of us on the resident staff, Dick Stanley, SJ, Joe McHugh, SJ, Randy Sachs, SJ and myself were delighted to see so many Jesuits, Guest Directors and faithful retreatants who have blessed this house of prayer over the years with their own prayerful presence. Thank you!

We are in-the-midst of our fourth directed retreat since the re-opening and are filled with gratitude for Gods own generosity in creating a house of prayer where all people find welcome!

We have plenty of rooms available for retreats in 2017 – we hope we’ll have the blessing of welcoming you in this ‘house of prayer.’

Blessings,

Joanne A. Fantini, CSJA

Director
