Message from Director of Mount St. Francis Retreat Centre

January,  2024


To all friends and supporters:
With news that the Mount is searching for a new Executive Director, some have wondered whether I am still here or not. Yes, I am still very much here! Last year I asked to have a change in my job description, wanting to step back from administration in order to focus on retreats and a few other projects I want to pursue outside of Mount St. Francis. I, however, did not want to give up retreat work, spiritual direction or listening to Step 5’s. The Franciscans have been more than accommodating to my request and used the timing to finalize the steps they were taking to ensure the long-term future of the Mount. It was decided that I will remain here as Director until August 31, after which I will continue to be a member of the Retreat Team. The Executive Director will be hired before that date and will focus first on the new aspects of the position that are not in my current role description. The new position is an exciting step toward our future and I look forward to supporting the successful candidate. Please continue to pray for all those who are involved in discerning this important changeover.
Thank you for all your support.
Susan Campbell, Director
