Living is full of challenges, especially now, and especially for those in recovery. In this class, “recovery” can mean whatever you want it to.

RIP Margaret Girvin
It is with sadness we report the passing of Margaret Girvin on May 1, 2020. Margaret and her late husband, Allen, were the long time caretakers at the old Barry House on Brant Lake. They served at Barry House from its opening in 1959 until their retirement 25 years later. They were known for their love of the Lord and their hospitality and can-do spirit in managing the various aspects of a retreat house. Margaret and Allen were beloved and respected by those who were guests at Barry House.

Rest eternal grant unto her, O Lord; let light perpetual shine upon her.

Almighty God, Father of all mercies and giver of comfort: Deal graciously, we pray, with all who mourn; that, casting all their care on you, they may know the consolation of your love; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
