NEW PROGRAM FEATURE – BEAUTIFUL, PRAYERFUL GROTTO

Posted in: Uncategorized- Oct 30, 2015 Comments Off

Retreat groups can now incorporate into their plans for worship and prayer,our new Grotto. A short trail walk from the Retreat House, the grotto was recently developed as an Eagle Scout Service Project by Gabe Rimel from  Scout Troop 116 at St Justin the Martyr Catholic Church. Thought to have once been a quarry to produce the stone for the Marycliff house and for the rock walls throughout the property. the site provides a perfect setting for the grotto. A large flat bedrock base, faced on one side by a stone bluff and surrounded by trees forming a canopy overhead makes it appear as if God placed it there for its intended purpose Рprayer and meditation. The Grotto includes rustic seating, a fire ring, a cross and a statue of the Blessed Mother. What a perfect place for evening worship for a group, or for quiet, peaceful individual prayer.
