Hospitality

Hospitality

It is our hope that we will establish a ministry of hospitality.

 

  • Welcoming Catholic families and families of any faith tradition who are seeking a richer, more fulfilling and successful family life to retreat with us as couples, as family units, or in larger gatherings of many families.
  • Welcoming ordained clergy to share a meal, a weekend, or longer with our family. Many clergy benefit from a family-centered environment, both for their own spiritual and emotional wellbeing, and as a means to rekindle a deeper understanding of daily life in a family environment. This time within a family enriches their own ministry to families in their parish through both liturgy and pastoral care.
  • Welcoming lay persons – single, married, and families to retreat on our farm for short stays or longer stays.  Families will work alongside us on the farm, gaining valuable knowledge about self sufficiency and radical practice of the faith – one that permeates all aspects of life.
  • Welcoming families in crisis to live in community with our family and with other families, in an independent but supported environment. Families will be assisted to find training and employment, be offered education in life skills, and given spiritual guidance and encouragement.
