As you may remember, we have been working on raising the funds to purchase the private home adjacent to the retreat lodge. Thanks to donors like yourself, God has provided $113,820 towards this goal! The Marble Retreat board of directors met recently and re-affirmed their commitment to this capital campaign. The Cappas, former directors and owners of this home, have decided to hold off on putting the house on the market at this time in order to give Marble Retreat more time to raise the funds for the shared goal of keeping the Marble Retreat campus intact and expand the ministry.
By purchasing this home, Marble Retreat will be in a position to both broaden our ministry and take necessary steps to ensure a peaceful haven for all who come seeking refuge and restoration. Preserving this peaceful sanctuary will allow us to continue to provide the quiet, anonymity, and beauty our clients love and appreciate. In addition, turning this home into a ministry center would allow us to host larger staff retreats, couple’s retreats, spiritual formation retreats and more.
We are currently applying for several grants to cover the remaining balance needed to purchase the adjacent property. Please pray for these foundations to capture a heart for what we do at Marble Retreat and for favorable outcomes.
