Founder’s Message

We welcome you and your family to this place.

We founded this place to give us an alternative to the city. The quiet can bring peace by means of reflection especially in the company of friends and family. This place was named after a good man who gave a stranger another chance at the cost of his own life.

When asked how it all started, I can’t help but give all glory to God. It started when I read a story about a man who bought a plot of land when he was in jail. Not knowing how much the land could be worth, he trusted first. Things came together for this man.

Happy to share my personal experiences and doing it God’s way. This has much to do with good work. The St. Maximilian Retreat House was founded on the idea of communion with others. Happy are we who are poor in spirit.
