The Priory Needs Your Help

There are over 7 billion people around the world and many of them do not have access to a safe environment and a place set apart from the urban lifestyle.  Your donation to The Priory Retreat House is an investment for the future generations who will be in need of such a place more and more as populations increase and natural habitats are lost.  Consider helping us protect our 100 acres and country home from the threat of suburban sprawl and the loss of intentional retreat time.


Gifts are fully tax-deductible and giving is as easy as following these instructions:

What do we need help with? Just about everything: cooking, gardening, yard work, house cleaning, maintenance, trail blazing, painting, house sitting, construction, annual event help – and plenty more.
