Finding God in Nature

The Spiritual Life Center is a place of prayer. Here you will find a place to retreat from daily living, and a place conducive to quieting the soul. Chapel of Mary, the First Disciple is the primary chapel used at the Center for daily Mass and group prayer. The secluded Blessed Sacrament Chapel is a place for quiet prayer and reflection. The Eucharist rests in a tabernacle on top of a huge rock of sandstone. This chapel is available at all times for prayer. At the Spiritual Life Center there are many talks and lectures about God and the Spirit, but often a slow walk in the woods allows us time to understand meaning of words and the Word made Flesh. The Spiritual Life Center features many maintained walking trails spread across 37 acres.
