Great, peaceful place! Danielle – Ontario
Galilee is like my second home – the staff are wonderful and have always made me feel ‘almost family’. The facilities are more than adequate and the food is fabulous.

Galilee Centre is such a great opportunity to step out of the busy hectic pace of life and for a very reasonable cost, connect with the beautiful grounds – the river, the forest and recharge the mind and body. The delicous meals and simple accommodations allow for solitude & reflection
Maybe the best centre for retreat ever for me, and I’ve been to many over the years. Thank you so much.
It was an excellent program and very inclusive of RC and Protestants, e.g. at the common table.
A beautiful, serene place.
This trip around the Galilee Labyrinth is the most beautiful meditation experience I’ve ever lived. Thank you for allowing me to live that experience.
I can’t express in words how much I enjoy your hospitality, wonderful accommodation, and especially the wonderful fellowship from staff and participants.
What beautiful energy! Namaste.
I will be telling others about the Galilee Centre, spreading the word about the peace and relaxation I was able to enjoy here. Thank you!
There is a little piece (peace) of heaven for me every time I come up. Tranquility.
I especially appreciate the care and careful planning of my special diet. I have never been fed so well! Bless you.
It’s obvious to me that this land has been dearly loved for centuries. Please tell your donors that a retreat centre like Galilee Centre is a necessity in our modern world.
