Fr Prior and Br Gregory were able to return to Galong to conduct the women’s retreat. 24 ladies were able to take part in the event, for which we are most grateful to Divine Providence.
On their way back, the monks made a pilgrimage to the tomb of Venerable Eileen O’Connor in order to entrust to her the future of the community and the retreat apostolate. Eileen O’Connor was drawn to assist the poor sick in their homes. The retreats seek to bring an oasis of grace to the spiritually poor in our modern spiritual desert. May she watch over us all.
