Marie Joseph Spiritual Center
Please join us for a weekend retreat March 31st -April 2nd in Biddeford, Maine.
“Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves,” Jesus said, “and rest a while.” Jesus calls us to retreat from our usual routines and responsibilities and take some Sabbath time to pray, rest and renew ourselves in community with others. Save the date for a retreat of prayer, reflection and deepening our relationship with God, the earth and one another at Marie Joseph Center in Biddeford Pool, ME, beginning with dinner (at 5:30) on Friday, March 31st and ending with lunch on Sunday, April 2nd. The retreat house is on the ocean, with private rooms. The cost will be $170 per person, with checks (made out to Saint Matthew’s) due by March 15th, but we will share the load with anyone for whom cost is a burden. For more information, contact Pastor Steve.
Nestled along Maine’s southern coast, Marie Joseph Spiritual Center, owned and operated by the Congregation of the Presentation of Mary, offers a spiritual haven for many. Refreshment for spirit, mind and body is available for persons seeking a sacred space, silence, healing and a deeper relationship with their God. The Center’s sustaining inspiration and zeal find their roots in that of the Congregation’s foundress, Blessed Marie Rivier, whose desire was “to make Jesus Christ known, loved and to light the fire of God’s love everywhere”.
