Silent Sanctuary Retreat (March 2019)

Black Rock Retreat | website | Quarryville, false 17566 event website

We all struggle to stay focused and keep God in the forefront of busy and cluttered lives. Though Black Rock Retreat is not a completely silent venue, the Silent Sanctuary Retreats offer spaces of silence and solitude in the middle of the symphony of life. This retreat provides opportunity to learn how to practice peace and rest in spite of outside melodies. Held in the lovely and comfortable Maranatha Retreat Center, the Silent Sanctuary Retreat will include extended hours of reflection with optional resources for you to make the most of your time with God such as prayer stations, handouts and music and art areas. Included in the weekend is an optional “Tools for Purposeful Pursuit of Jesus” session led by local artist Priscilla Williams. Black Rock Retreat is the perfect location for guests to see God’s handiwork as they meander along the trails or sit on the deck or enjoy the warmth of a fireplace. Also available is a Prayer Labyrinth for all guests to “walk the path”.

Ramble through Tucquan Glen or Kelly's Run Glen

Kelly’s Run Pinnacle

Trail, Hiking, Bucket
website | map it | No direct road access (see LCC website), Martic Township, Pennsylvania, 17532

The remains of an old rocky road are visible where flat schistic rocks have been placed side by side in and beside the stream. The Conservancy’s “Kelly’s Run Pinnacle Preserve” now encompasses the Conservancy’s Kelly’s Run trails, the former PPL Pinnacle preserve and the former PPL Holtwood Nature Preserve.

Tucquan Glen

Trail, Hiking, Bucket
website | map it | River Road, Martic Township, Pennsylvania, 17532

A largely abandoned dirt road and well-worn trail meander through the heart of the ravine for nearly a mile. Occasionally the road and trail run together for short distances, but are generally apart. We suggest taking the trail down to the railroad and returning via the road. The round trip trail length is estimated at 2.4 miles.
