Visit Webpage Jubilee House Retreat & Conference Center

Jubilee House has two comfortable lodges to accommodate up to 38 guests. Each lodge also has a prayer room and prayer nooks for quiet reflection. The main building comprises the gathering room which is ideal for the workshop, brightly lit Solarium/Commons/library areas for reading or and reflection. The food from the kitchen is delightful and served up in a bright sunny dining room.

When you have time outside of the workshop hours there are paths/trails to walk on. This summer both workshops have labyrinths on the premises. I'll have to read up on that and see what connection or meditation it offers in relationship to iconography.
