Visit our Stations…
On a grassy hilltop next to the center, there is a meditaiton garden with 14 stations of the cross that mark the key events of Jesus on his way to Calvary. Each station has a prayer and offers incredible views of Baker Mountain and surrounding hillsides. The stations were finished in 2017, and have started receiving some visitors (including the wild turkeys seen in the photo). Inquire here to find out how you can make these rich meditations part of your experience this Lent.

CHAPEL IMPROVEMENTS UNDERWAY…
We have received 2/3rds of our goal of $10,000 to improve the chapel area, and donations are still flowing in. The 4″ wooden louver shutters are on order. Selection is beginning for the other liturgical vessels and items including chalices, statues, monstrance, and altar cloths. If you would like to help in improving the chapel, follow this link:
Or please contact Deacon Scott D. Gilfillan if you might want to help in either purchasing or locating these items from various sources. Thank you for all of your generosity and support in making the center a great place for evangelization and renewal!
