Fr Prior, Br Gregory and Br Francisco return today from NSW where they were able to give two retreats. From 24 to 29 January, 21 men followed the Spiritual Exercises at Benedict XVI retreat centre in Grose Vale NSW. This was the first time we were holding a retreat at this gorgeous venue. It began with excessive heat, during which we thanked God for the air-conditioned rooms, but then turned to rain and cool, making for a stark contrast between the two halves of the retreat.
From 31 January to 3 February, 31 ladies made the 3-day version of the Exercises at The Hermitage, Mittagong. This absolutely stunning venue, also a first time for us, is held by the Marist brothers who were very welcoming and helpful.
So much to be thankful for!
Dates and venues for upcoming retreats will soon be available. Stay tuned.
