The Rebirth of Marylake
A NEW BEGINNING
"From its rolling hills, cultivated farmland and kettle lake, to its forest tract, marshes, hiking trails, Rosary Path and more, one need only sit in silence for but a moment before it becomes abundantly clear that this land was designed for respite, spiritual reflection, meditation, healing, and contemplation." writes Kelly Mathews, author of the recently published The Road to Marylake.
So far, in 2016 and 2017, we have built and made accessible the world's largest living rosary - the 1.5 kilometer Rosary Path at Marylake, and we have also installed the Great Crucifix at its beginning. The Shrine of Our Lady of Grace has been refurbished and is now open for world-class masses, concerts and conferences. Design and work on the 14-station "Way of the Cross" has begun, statues and fountains are being erected.
Benches, picnic tables and gazebos have been added in the spring of 2016/2017. Trees are being planted and landscaping work continues on The Rosary Path. There's a lot more to do as outlined in Our Bold New Vision, and support and donations will help expedite projects. We have also developed this website that is more reflective of the essence and spirituality of Marylake, and we encourage you to connect with us.

No Confessions on Sundays
Confession is a sacrament instituted by Jesus Christ in his love and mercy. It is here that we meet the loving Jesus who offers sinners forgiveness for offenses committed against God, neighbours or strangers. At the same time, Confession permits sinners to reconcile with the Church, which also is wounded by our sins.
“You aspire to great things? Begin with little ones.” – St. Augustine
There are different ways of giving. You can make a one time donation, or recurring donations as in once a month, or set to a periodic schedule that fits your personal preferences. You can also pick one of our many projects or causes to donate to.
Through your generosity, we are better equipped to serve you here at Marylake. We receive no regular charitable funding from dioceses or the Augustinian headquarters in Rome. Your generosity will go a long way towards the success of our Order, mission and long term objectives...
