Our February Blog:  The Emmaus Hermitage
from Blessed Trinity Shrine Retreat, Fort Mitchell, AL

Blessed Trinity Shrine Retreat is nestled in 1200 acres of woodlands and is a perfect place to plan a retreat – whether individual or with a group.  We would like to invite you to come to our Hermitage called Emmaus.

This hermitage is a holy dwelling place, a simple but comfortable prayer cabin that enables those on retreat to escape from the burdens of everyday life to be more fully attentive to the God’s presence. This cabin is nestled carefully into the woods amidst the beauty of the natural environment to ensure the quiet and solitude of each guest on retreat.

Our hermitage is named Emmaus to remind us of the journey that we are on as Christians and the awareness that Christ is with us – even when we don’t initially recognize Him.  We invite Jesus to join with us in prayer as we hold each guest before the altar of God.
