THANK YOU!!!! Really THANK YOU! from my very soul. Stepping away to focus on myself and leaving the stresses of life behind was way overdue. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to enjoy the peace and serenity of the Christine Center. Again, Thank You!

It was so special. The best experience of my life. I am so happy to know this place exists so close to my home. Thank you so much for providing this Center to us, it is such a special place.

When I arrived at Christine Center I was in need of restoration. I traversed the dark night of the soul with several losses over a relatively short period of time. The Christine Center provided all the elements for mending and rejoining the mind/body/spirit. Between the beautiful meditations held in the chapel by Sister Johanna, being enveloped in the wonder of nature, solitary walks on the trails, the serenity of the hermitage, and the spiritual guidance session with Sister Gabe, it was truly what my soul needed and received. I look forward to my next extended visit.

I love your mission and acceptance of all kinds of practices and rituals. The vibe and energy is so serene and accepting. It’s like an oasis there. And a powerful love that permeates the grounds and the buildings. I feel it immediately when I drive into the grounds. 🙂 There’s no other place like it.

You have such a space of respite and allowing in our deeper selves for healing and contemplation. Bless you for all that you offer to others through your beautiful center, grounds and hermitages. I share with people in my life all the time about you and your staff and facilities.
