Our Lady's Grotto
Nazareth Walkway

These are places we recommend you visit:

Marymount Hermitage - We are a Catholic community of Hermit Sisters living in the desert mountains of rural Idaho in the United States. Our home is called “Marymount Hermitage.” We are not cloistered religious, but our way of life is strictly contemplative.

We live by The Rule of St. Benedict and model our lives after the Desert Fathers of the third century in Egypt. While we have a great respect and love for the ancient traditions of hermits, we also try to respond to the Holy Spirit enabling us to live authentic contemplative lives of prayer in this day and age.

The Daily Heidi-Gram - Daily reflections based on the daily Mass readings, other spiritual readings, and nudgings of the Holy Spirit by Heidi Gainan.
