The Notre Dame Retreat House on Foster Rd., in Canandaigua recently announced it will close next year.
The retreat grounds, a 50 acre parcel overlooking Canandaigua Lake, with ponds, forests, a gazebo, and welll-maintained grounds has been in operation over 50 years, since 1967. However, with financial difficulties caused by cutbacks in retreats during the pandemic, as well as a shortage of Catholic Redemptorist priests on staff to run the retreats for men, women, and couples, a decision to close the retreat house was made.
Unable to find marketplace offers.
The 2022 season will continue as in the past, but the house is expected to cease operations by Aug. 1, 2023.
