What others have said:
"Thank you for a very special prayer filled weekend...Future retreats will have a difficult time exceeding the spiritual growth, peace and comfort I obtained from attending. For years your music has inspired me, helped me grow in my faith, enhanced my prayer life, and sustained me in times of trial...I had so much to take away from the talks and have found myself naturally adding some of the bigger 'aha' moments to my daily routines and prayer. I have added one one of your recommended books to my prayer time and expect to always be working on my rule of life. I am primarily thankful that the many gifts of that weekend will continue to enrich and bless my days. I know they always will." - Lisa Dennison
"I very much enjoyed the retreat. Your presentation helped strengthen my prayer life as I'm making my time for prayer a priority...and your music was lovely." - Kathy Medford
"I have established a practice of prayer in my daily routine but it was encouraging to hear you recommend many of the practices I have already adopted. It confirmed I was on a good path. The CDs will only enhance those practices and make them more meaningful. I look forward to sharing them with my adult children." - Betsy Staal, Pastoral Assistant, Holy Family Parish
