New Hermitage

Open at Holy Cross Retreat Center:

For many people there is a desire for quiet and solitude to listen to God, to listen to our hearts, to rest.

Scripture tells of Jesus and many others taking time in the desert to pray.

On May 20th, about 50 people gathered for the blessing and opening of our new Hermitage at Holy Cross Retreat Center in Mesilla Park, New Mexico. The Hermitage is located on the southeast corner of our property, behind the retreat rooms with a wonderful view of the Organ Mountains.

Many thanks to our many volunteers and donors.
