If you've been to our retreat center, you've probably seen the dedication on the front of our building that says "House of Mercy Holy Year AD 1925". While 1925 was the year the "Evergreen" estate was sold to the Sisters of Mercy, and extensive renovations were made to turn the building into the home for the Sisters of Mercy Novitiate, it was not until 1962 that Our Lady of the Pines Retreat Center was officially established.

Introducing the "Sixty-Sixty" challenge:

As we near the holidays and a season of giving, we ask you to prayerfully consider a financial contribution to ensure another 60 Years of retreat ministry here at Our Lady of the Pines Retreat Center. From now until the end of the year, we are looking for SIXTY individuals to pledge to give $60 a month (or more) in 2023. 

Would you like to participate in our "Sixty-Sixty" challenge? Simply click the "Set Up Recurring Giving Today" button below and check the box that says "make this a monthly donation" (see graphic). Recurring donations are a great way to give regularly without needing to make multiple transactions or send a check once a month (though if that appeals to you, checks can be made out to "Our Lady of the Pines Retreat Center" and mailed to 1250 Tiffin St., Fremont, OH 43420). Another benefit of online giving, is that once you set-up your recurring donation, you can edit it at any time by signing into your PayPal account.

Be sure to check this page for updates between now and Dec. 31 to see if we meet our challenge of 60 individuals pledging to give $60/month. We look forward to sharing our progress with you!
