Does anyone know anything about St. Herman's Hermitage, a tiny church not far from Colfax in the late 70's-early 80's? The minister was Al Currier.

I was married there in 1979 and wonder if the place is still there.

i met David, Stephanie, and their kids in 1986, when i bicycled from Winona, Minnesota, to make a week-long retreat there. David was a substitute teacher with the Colfax school district. They sold their place to another couple, and i made another retreat there several years later. No idea what happened to them, but i don't think they had much income from the retreats.

I live nearby and used to see Al and Nancy quite often but have not seen them since late 1990's. There is another owner living at the place.

Last time I spoke with Al and nancy they were living in Menomonie near the Red cedar trail.

Hello,

I am involved in archiving the work of the late Archimandrite David, Iconographer and believe he may have been commissioned to paint the Annunciation icon for the Royal Doors at the Hermitage, Colfax.
We are compiling a Google map which shows where the icons are and it would be lovely if we could add the hermitage to it.

Any information will be helpful.

Best wishes,

I spent some times there in the late 80's. Cold and snowy, hiking the ridge, sauna, Rick(?) in the teepee. Collected my wits and moved to Bellingham, WA for a greater part of the 90's. Can't remember exactly where the Hermitage is anymore. I get through there time and again, would love to see if the retreats are still available.
