Maryholme Moments...

Thank you to Maria and Roy of Blue Willow Garden & Landscape Centre in Baldwin for their generous gift of garden supplies. We wish them every blessing in their next endeavours.

From the Archives...

Back in the day, when Loretto Maryholme was still called "The Pines", when Roches Point was still spelled "Roachs Point", and when a gentleman might be able to lounge on the porch railing in his hunting attire with his rifle in his lap, surveying the surrounding properties...


"Trust the mystery  that unites all things...
We cannot define God.
But we can be with God;
we can know God."
"We're here to know, love and serve God...
... and to be blown away by the beauty
and miracle of nature."
Catherine of Siena
"The story of Easter
is the story of God's wonderful window
of divine surprise."
  Carl Knudsen
