Eastern Point Retreat House
On Saturday, November 12, 2016 The Jesuits re-dedicated Eastern Point Retreat House in Gloucester, MA, celebrating their re-opening with a new residential wing that was designed by Sterling Associates, Inc.. The new building pictured above has 38 private rooms with private baths and ocean views with outdoor decks on the water side. The building also contains five new spiritual direction rooms and three administrative offices.
Great care was taken to select new stone that matches the color and texture of the original 1921 mansion, bricks that match the original red slate roof color and window sizes that align with the original Gatsby Era design. It has become an important revitalized spiritual center for quiet reflection and meditation.
