Come to the Quiet

Sharing a thank you note from one of our recent guests at Maris Stella!

Come to Maris Stella, a retreat and oasis in your walk with your God.

Located on 11 acres of pristine land on Long Beach Island, one side overlooking the Bay to contemplate the beauty and vastness of the love of God, the other side with land on our private beach overlooking the ocean to contemplate the limitless ebbs and flows of our lives.

Come, see, refresh your souls, breath in the sea infused air, come to this sanctuary to soothe your cares away. The Sisters of Charity have land so desired by others and unattainable no matter the wealth or status.  A diamond of the ocean for your enjoyment and peace. Come.

A grateful sojourner…
