On retreat

I’m back from a weekend retreat at Villa St. Joseph in Cobourg, ON.

Hosted by the Sisters of St. Joseph in Canada, it was a perfect way to begin the Advent season.  There was time to read, pray, explore the house and grounds (at one time a summer home for the daughter of American President Ulysses S. Grant!), and of course, enjoy delicious meals prepared by their cook. I’ve come back the Abbey feeling refreshed and ready for Advent and the busy month of December.

  1. Peaceful and calm, the perfect place to contemplate and pray.
