News from our American confreres...

Mount St Alphonsus retreat centre will close next year. The site, which sits on the Hudson River has been functioning for 101 years - 75 years as our own seminary, and then as a retreat centre for 26 years.

"Mount St. Alphonsus, which sits on several hundred acres on the west shore of the Hudson, will continue to conduct retreats and host weddings, conferences and receptions through the end of 2011, the Redemptorists said."

“The Redemptorists have been at Mount St. Alphonsus for more than 100 years, since it opened as our North American seminary,”  the Very Rev. Kevin Moley, provincial of the Baltimore Province, said in the e-mail. “Many of our confreres have wonderful memories of their years here, so the decision to close was not an easy one."

“We are grateful to have spent so many years in Esopus and to have served so many people through our retreats and conferences,” Moley added. “The Mount will always hold a special place in the heart of all Redemptorists in the Baltimore Province.”

We know it must be very difficult for the confreres of the Baltimore Province to make this decision and our thoughts and prayers are with them.
