A Thanksgiving message…

Studies have shown that having a thankful attitude is the secret to good health and state of mind. If there were only one word I could choose to describe the attitude of the guests that come to the center, that word would be thankful. The people that visit the center freely express gratitude for the hospitality, the food and the ambiance. Above all, they are simply grateful for being able to set a little time aside for renewal. They embody the words of St. Paul: Give thanks in all circumstances. (1 Thes 5:18)

We at the conference center are also grateful for having the opportunity to serve and be among so many fascinating and faithful people. Their thankfulness is contagious, and inspires us to do our best. We thank all of the many guests that have come to the center time and time again. We also thank the groups that have discovered the beauty of the center for the first time this year. You all have been a blessing to us, and the reason for our thankful attitude.

Deo gratius!

Deacon Scott D. Gilfillan
Director, Catholic Conference Center
