What Happened at Wernersville

Last week the New York Times published an article that must have surprised long-time readers of its Travel section.  It was a Brooklyn woman’s account of her five-day retreat at the Jesuit Center in Wernersville, Pennsylvania.  I’ve seen lots of retreat houses.  I’ve made a retreat at Wernersville myself.  It was enlightening to see the place through the eyes of a secular New Yorker who didn’t really know what she was getting into.  Read the piece here.


  1. Jim,
    Thanks for including. The way she described the retreat house fits to a T most of the places we’ve all gone.
    More importantly, for her, it sounds like she found the peace she so desperately needed. God is good.
