Announcement: Villa Madonna Retreat House Closure and Open House
The Villa Madonna Retreat House (the Villa) located in Little Bras d'Or, NS has served the Diocese of Antigonish and its parishioners and community members since 1972. The Villa offered a place of reflection and renewal for those who stayed there. The Villa will be closing as of June 13, 2014.
On June 20, 2014, there will be an Open House from 7-9 pm (with a closing service around 8 pm) for those who would like to share memories from renewal experiences at the Villa.
For the past year, the Diocese has been seeking alternatives to the Villa. After considering numerous options, we believe that the Camp Bretondean, an ecumenical residential camp supported by the Anglican churches of Cape Breton and administered by the Camp Bretondean Corporation.
Everyone is welcomed to attend the Open House on Friday.

Saint Kateri Tekawitha
Pray For Us
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta said: "The greatest poverty of mankind is that of not knowing Christ...... "People are hungry for God. People need love. Are we aware of this? Do we know this? Do we see it? Do we have eyes to see it? Often our gaze wanders without settling upon anyone ... As if we are here for nothing more than to pass through this world. We should open our eyes, open our eyes and see."
AD MAJOREM DEI GLORIAM
"The Lord has the right to be glorified by us at every moment ... So if we waste time we are robbing God of his glory."
- Saint Josemaria Escriva
Keep your eyes on Jesus!
