Upcoming retreat in Still River, MA

imagesWe have received questions about the upcoming retreat to be held at the St. Benedict Abbey in Still River, MA.

If you are in the New York / New England area is is probably best to drive. Priests who attended the annual Priests Retreat in September drive in from Rhode Island, Vermont, New Jersey, Pennsylvania (Philadelphia & Scranton) and other areas. You can find directions here.

If you are coming from further and would like to fly in. You can come into Providence, Boston and some come into Worcester. Those who choose to fly in must provide their own transportation to and from the airport.

There are various rooms at the Abbey. Most are single or double. Bed linens and towels are provided. Take your own toiletries. Bathrooms are private, but seperate from the rooms (each floor has a few).

Also, since it is the beginning of October, nights can be chilly. Check the weather here.

Be sure to register ASAP!

  1. Hello,
    My husband and I would like to attend the retreat this weekend. We were at Eileen’s service this past Sunday as well as subsequent ones. We have a child with special needs and have a school event Thursday evening which is very important. We also need to get him to school on Friday early. Therefore, we can not attend Thursday events. Is if possible to able to attend the retreat from Friday-Sunday? We tried to find a contact phone number, but there doesn’t appear to be one available. Your response is appreciated.
    Thank you and God bless. Joan

    • That should not be a problem at all. Just go and pay for the retreat when you arrive. I will forward your information to one of Eileen’s secretaries. God bless you!

      • Hello Fr. and Eileen.
        Could you please ask Eileen to pray for a healing for
        my friend, Kathleen York, who is battling cancer? She has 7 children and the youngest is only five years old. She is a devout Catholic and lives in Concord, CA. Would it be possible for Eileen to call her? If so, I can send the phone #.

  2. I ask you to please keep in your prayer my friend and co-worker who is a cancer survivor and is now having major back surgery next week.
    Also I ask you to please pray for me as I am 2 1\2 months post op from foot surgery and I am having difficulty walking and am in constant pain.
    I thank you and keep you in my prayer.

  3. I would very much like to attend the December 28, 2014 service with my son. Kindly respond as to whether or not it will be held as scheduled. Also, please ask Eileen to pray for my son, Michael, who is needs healing for emotional/mental/physical concerns. Thank you very much.

  4. I came to know about Eileen first time today. Please pray for my nephew who is Autistic. Jesus may heal him and make hi healthy. please pray Jesus may call my kids to serve HIM as Priests.
