Marie Joseph Spiritual Center in Maine
Nestled along Maine’s southern coast, Marie Joseph Spiritual Center, owned and operated by the Congregation of the Presentation of Mary, offers a spiritual haven for many. Refreshment for spirit, mind and body is available for persons seeking a sacred space, silence, healing and a deeper relationship with their God. The Center’s sustaining inspiration and zeal find their roots in that of the Congregation’s foundress, Blessed Marie Rivier, whose desire was “to make Jesus Christ known, loved and to light the fire of God’s love everywhere”.
The Center welcomes lay and religious women and men of all faith traditions who value time for reflection in the peaceful presence of a praying community. Guests are welcomed at daily Eucharist and Morning and Evening Prayer. Once a week there is adoration before the Blessed Sacrament. Two dining rooms afford the choice of a silent meal or one where conversation is shared. In addition to welcoming retreatants, the Center’s staff designs and hosts programs fostering themes on spiritual growth, healing and support.
