  • A silent retreat at this most holy place is the perfect setting to encounter Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. While on retreat at the Abbey of the Genesee, I repeatedly have experienced the joy, love, mercy and magnificence of our Lord. I praise God with love and thanksgiving for this wonderful gift He has given us!
