Dear Friend of Jesuit Retreat House,
It is a great joy to begin this New Year living into the unfolding dream for JRH that has grown over the past 20 years. With the opening of our beautiful new addition this past summer, we are fulfilling the foundational hope “to better serve more people." In the Ignatian tradition, magis (Latin for “more”) connotes a spirit of generous excellence and is oriented toward deeper union with God. Ultimately, more space for programs and prayer can support and strengthen more people on their journey with and toward God.
Visitors and guests have been very impressed by the design and uplifting feeling of our new space and how it enhances the entire facility. We began this new year with painting and new flooring in our dining room, and renovations will continue this year in the existing building.
We are very thankful to all who have supported our capital campaign to fund this project. We have now reached 81% of our $8 million goal. For those who have not yet had the opportunity to participate in the campaign, please prayerfully consider how you can best express your care and support for JRH with a gift as we build the foundation for generations to come.
As we journey in this New Year, may we be ever open to the grace of our God with us.
God be with you,
Richard S. Krivanka, Executive Director
