Welcome to the Eastern Point Retreat House



Dear Friends,

It is with a sincere sense of gratitude and peace that I share the news with all of you that as of May 1, 2017, Fr. Joe McHugh, S.J. will take over as Director of EPRH. I am most grateful to the former Provincial Myles Sheehan, SJ and the present Provincial John Cecero, SJ for their confidence and support in my leadership over the past four years. Truly, it has been an honor to serve in this special ministry during a time of transition, renovation, and new life.

I am delighted to report that while I am stepping down as Director, I will remain a full-time member of the retreat house staff, engaged in the ministry of the Spiritual Exercises and spiritual direction.

These changes come as the fruit of a discernment process with the Jesuits on the retreat house staff that I initiated for the future flourishing of EPRH.  The discernment, which began in the fall, was enhanced by our mutual affection, collegiality, and collaboration.  Together we determined that the Holy Spirit was moving us in the direction of these changes, and this was confirmed through Fr. Cecero, who honored our discernment and effected the changes.

  I offer my thanks to all of you, our EPRH community, who supported, encouraged, and prayed for me in my role as Director. I am profoundly grateful for all the ways you have sustained me in this role.

In all of this, I give thanks for what was, and I look forward in thanksgiving and hope for all that will be, under Fr. Joe’s leadership.

In Christ,
