“Those who contemplate the beauty of earth
find deep reserves of strength and peace.”  
Rachel Carson

Christmas Blessings
A retreatant once said, “When I come to Springbank 
I find an ocean of peace.”

Springbank is more oasis than ocean.
It’s for exploring your spirit, restoring it, reflecting 
on it and relaxing while you do.
You know what it feels like to be here…

The Sisters who welcome you to Springbank
want to keep this place
whole and healthy.
We need help to do that.

We need Friends who know that a gift is what 
happens when it’s your heart’s turn to talk.
It is good to know we have them.
And that you’re one.

Your gift large, small, or in the middle,
is Tax-deductible.
More than that it’s how Springbank lives.
And gives all who come
A place to view the ocean inside.


May the Spirit of Peace dwell in your heart.
You are held lovingly in our prayers.

Dear Springbank Supporters:

What is the value of a friendship?
Can you put a price on it? 
We don't think you can. 

Your friendship and support of Springbank cannot be measured; neither can the lives of hundreds of searchers that are touched and changed when they come to these beautiful acres. What value do you put on freedom from addictions or a sense of spiritual unity with God's creation?

Walking the trails or the labyrinth or meditating under the thousand year old grandmother tree are freeing experiences, but they are not free. Fees for seminars, retreats and sabbaticals are kept at a minimum to encourage participation and inclusiveness. Our budgets are modest but they are real, and the reality of our expenses is before us everyday as we plan for future programs and events.

If you have ever visited Springbank, you know its beauty and serenity. If you have never been, please write or call to arrange a visit. God has made us beautiful; the government has made us deductible; the economy has put us in need. Please send us what you can afford along with your prayers. (For parish priests/ministers. Please consider adding support for Springbank to your parish/congregation benevolence budget.) Perhaps you would wish to become a Springbank sustainer by arranging for us to deduct a monthly amount from your bank account or credit card.

Please know that your gifts and prayers are needed and that you are welcome to visit with us and see for yourselves how Springbank nourishes the mind, body and spirit and changes lives. We can continue only with your help and the grace of God.

The Sisters of Springbank

Healing Center for Women
(New Project at Springbank)

Nestled in a wooded area on Springbank land is a beautiful 13x30 ft. natural, pinewood structure, built to offer healing space for all those seeking rejuvenation for mind, body, spirit emotions. The Healing Center will enhance not only the mission of Springbank, Healing Self “ Healing Earth, but also intentionally create another sacred site that would offer healing practices.  

Some of these healing practices will include Addictions Counseling, Spiritual Direction, Prayer, Meditation, Yoga Instruction, Massage, Healing Touch, Clinical Aromatherapy and Herbal Remedies.  

Our needs to complete this building are: professional interior design, electrical installation, plumbing, interior walls, kitchen appliances, cedar sauna, furnishings for counseling room, massage room and 12-Step meeting space.

A colorful stained-glass window, in the process of being designed, is being gifted for the entry of the building.

We need you, our friends, in the continued implementation of creating this sacred healing space. Your donation will contribute to healing of many who come to Springbank. As always your contribution is tax deductible.

Gratefully,
The Sisters of Springbank
