“The Hawkstone course was balanced, beautiful, and delightful. Hawkstone is your home; here is your freedom. Believe me, it is an addictive place! The Redemptorist community and the staff invest in people, and that is the most valuable investment in the Church today. There is an overwhelming hospitality and reverence for each person, which will stay with me for the rest of my life as the treasure beyond price.”
