Dear Friends of Eastern Point Retreat House,

We held our first 8-day directed retreat in 2 years October 4-12th. All gathered were grateful for the renewed ministry in this sacred place. The new resident retreat wing was met with rave reviews particularly the open vistas, private baths and esthetical details. All designed to enhance the experience of silence and beauty.

Due to some late cancellations we do have a few rooms available on the following retreats:

November 14-21, 2016 – 7-Day Directed

December 14-19, 2016 – 5-Day Directed (Advent)

If you would like to join us for one of the above retreats please e-mail Susan Lucas at slucas@jesuits.org to expedite your application.

Save the Date: EPRH Re-Dedication and Open House, Sat. November 12th, 2016 2:00-5:00 pm with George Witt, SJ and the EPRH Staff. Re-Dedication at 2:30 pm. Light refreshments will be served. Please RSVP here, by November 8, 2016.  Please note “Open House” in the subject line of your email.

We look forward to welcoming you in our beautiful new space.  “Good things, do indeed come to those who wait!”
