“Making All Things New!”
We believe we are one with all peoples, cultures and creation in the ancient longing to find and to live in peace.
Rooted in the Franciscan tradition, the Mt.

Looking out over our pond: we come upon times of change an challenge; a new season is appearing yet illness and death darken the sky, of a new day for others. This morning seven Whitetail deer bounded away from here as I slid open my door to feed the birds. Deer and their fears leave - yet, somehow we remain and, with our prayers, make space in our hearts for persons far from here. Like St Joseph, Mary’s spouse, who we remember today - we take Christ’s mother in, listen to our dreams and find with Mary and her son, a new life that has now begun- In the midst of trials and pain. We hope for the well-being of all people and places. We look to the anointing of Christ, who is remaining with us on our way.☀️ We continue to pray for all around us as well as those near to us.
