St. John’s Hermitage


The vision for St. John’s is unique in the U.S. as a place dedicated to keeping Priests healthy in spirit, mind and body. The board and founding supporters envision that the hermitage property will be dedicated to Priests, as a place of refreshment and enjoyment. Our Priests make a lifetime commitment to serving us, the laity; this is one gracious and meaningful way for us to say THANK YOU … by giving them a place of peace and beauty to call their own to pray and play with:

  • Communal celebration of the Eucharist
  • Time and space in a natural wooded setting for silence and prayer including the potential for outdoor Stations of the Cross on the trails
  • Individual pastoral care
  • Individual and ongoing spiritual direction
  • Continuing theological education
  • Fraternity and recreation, such as hiking, camping, and mountain biking
