Marillyn Baner
Executive Director

“I fell in love with the potential I saw during my first tour of the campus – seven years later, it has been awesome to see the potential become reality.  I love serving the diverse group of guests and giving someone a tour, sharing the sacred space and amenities we have to offer. “


Steve Miller
Assistant Director

“When you walk through those doors, when you talk to the people that ‘work’ here and when you look into the eyes of those being served by Pallottine, you can feel the difference. Hospitality is a catch phrase in many places; not here. Pallottine exists to see reconnection and renewal become reality. There’s no feeling like it in the world, and we love helping make it happen.”


Jen Krehmeyer
Director of Food Service

“When I first came here for my interview, I saw multiple signs from my grandmother in heaven. She was telling me this was where I needed to be. Since then I have realized God gave me talents beyond my previous comprehension. This is what He made me for. Cooking is not a job to me; it’s my playtime! I’m always telling my staff “Let’s go play!” We have so much fun being creative and tasting new things. I feel truly blessed to be a part of something so amazing!”


Kevin Tierney
Director of Maintenance

“I have been at PRC since 2013. Maintaining and updating a 50-year-old building is both challenging and gratifying. Our team is innovative and imaginative, and that has helped me improve the buildings, grounds and retreatants’ experience. I love my job.”

“I believe I was sent to Pallottine Renewal Center to continue to do what I love. I put my heart and soul into providing the best hospitality through preparing the guest rooms and meeting spaces for our visitors … after all, ‘Cleanliness is next to Godliness‘.”
