Catching Up

The sisters have been tirelessly praying for our community and the whole world throughout this crisis. We are pleased to report that thanks to the generosity of the sisters and our benefactors, we have continued to fully employ our entire staff. Our team has been busy renovating the center over the past few weeks with fresh paint and new carpeting. We’ve also been implementing new policies and additions to ensure health and safety of our guests. 

New Policies

We have been closely monitoring the guidelines from the CDC and the state of Maine as we implement new policies for your safety. To that end, we will be requiring all guests to wear masks while in public spaces during their stay. We have also installed a new entrance for our kitchen staff and sneeze guards in the dining room. We will also be limiting the number of guests in accordance with official public health guidelines. These policies are for the safety for our guests and staff, and are subject to change with reasonable notice given the ever-changing nature of these times. Any changes to these policies will be reflected on this page, but if you have any questions, we encourage you to contact our business office at (207) 284-5671. 

Looking Forward…

The center will be open to guests who are residents of Maine or who have self-quarantined for 14 days starting June 1st. We plan to open to residents of neighboring states on July 1. These dates are our most current estimate as of May 19.
