“GilChrist: A Place to Remember” is a book that tells the story of GilChrist Retreat Center, how it came to be, the countless people who contributed to the creation and the stories that shaped it. People from all walks of life find their way to GilChrist for different reasons: they come to rest, to heal, to celebrate, for renewal and to remember what is essential in life.

Join us at the beautiful WindHill building on GilChrist's grounds on Sunday, October 15 from 2:00-4:00pm to chat with the book's author, Molly Vass-Lehman, purchase a book, and get your copy signed.

The book will be available after October 15 at the following places locally and online:
