As an offering to our guests, we provide overnight accommodations in one of our cottages. We are positioned on 5 acres of a 26-acre farm where we are free to create, explore & develop. In this beautiful setting, we extend opportunities for spiritual renewal & direction, a variety of faith-based educational programs, agritourism (farm life) experiences, walking paths and trails around the property, a prayer labyrinth & way of the cross for personal or group use, meeting spaces for small groups or ministry teams & training times, and artwork to enhance the natural beauty of the farm.

– A. Fryling





We have embraced two practices for many years: taking personal retreats of solitude and meditative reading of scripture called Lectio Divina.
