Welcome to our interactive 50th anniversary timeline. We are proud of the 50 years of growth that has taken place at our spiritual oasis in Marriottsville, Maryland. The Sisters of Bon Secours were innovative in their design and dreams for the Center’s use. The conference ministry has grown from a few groups holding yearly meetings to a full calendar of reservations by non-profit groups, businesses, churches and families. The retreat ministry, which started with Friends Day of Prayer retreats once per month, has grown to an average of 10 retreats per month! Retreats now include diverse topics and presenters that cater to an interfaith audience. We invite you to take a little trip down memory lane and view the timeline below. You may browse by using the arrows to the left and right or you can jump ahead by selecting a date directly on the timeline. Enjoy!
