Lord, Make Me an Instrument


The Lord speaks to us in a soft voice. If we are to hear Him, we must be still and focus on our relationship with God through contemplative prayer. This action purifies the temple of our soul. It removes worldly distractions, and provides an intimate reception which welcomes our Lord into our innermost being.

We have a small gift shop that offers a wide selection of books and reflective music for spiritual development and renewal.


Additionally, there are several conference rooms and a lounge area available for meetings and fellowship.

Donations may be made here.  Thank you for generosity..

Our purpose is to provide a peaceful sanctuary for your spiritual journey...not only for our Roman Catholic Community of faith, but for all those who seek the Lord's Grace and Countenance.
