Two new Hermitages for private prayer, sabbatical, or artists.  They can also be used by couples.We have a brochure with a further description of the hermitage.  One contains a full size bed and the other a queen size bed, table, rocking chair, kitchenette, and a full bathroom with a shower.  This provides space for quiet prayer, an extended retreat, a sabbatical, or some kind of artistic focus.  You can come for a couple days or a couple months or more.  You can also reserve one of the rooms in the retreat center for quiet time and personal prayer.  Call us for more details.   575 524 3688 or
