“The workshop that I held at Marytown for Catholic schools was a success. Marytown Retreat and Conference Center offered our workshop attendees an atmosphere that was both spiritual and professional. The assistance and hospitality extended to us by the Marytown staff was exceptional. The Conference Center facility was beautiful and very accessible. Meals were on time and delicious. Mass was available for our attendees at 7:00 a.m. and again at 12:00 noon. The meeting room was spacious and the seating very comfortable. Based on my experience, I recommend you consider Marytown for your next retreat or conference.”
