Greetings from St Francis Retreat Centre
1 July 2020
The doors are wide open waiting for your return.
We are very happy to tell you that life has returned to the new normal after Covid 19 restrictions and lockdown. We have all been taken on a journey, some things remain the same and others are new and different.
Here at the Friary we have had to scrutinise every aspect of our practise to make sure it is a safe enviroment for everyone. Now, instead of an open buffet, meals are served at the table. Residents who have been lucky enough to visit over the last couple of weeks seemed to have enjoyed this new practise.
Phil started working a few weeks ago as the new property manager. It is nice to see things returning to order again. Raphael continues to look after Mary’s Grotto and the numerous potted plants along the verandah. Thankyou.
As you would expect there are gaps in our bookings partly due to overseas visitors no longer coming to New Zealand and our new border restrictions. If you are looking for a place to hold your group conference, training day, retreat or church meeting, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 09 625 7384. We will do our best to accommodate you. Thanks.
Yours on behalf of the team
