Guest Retreat

Our annual guest retreat was held on Friday, April 30, 2010.  Eleven guests attended this day-long retreat held at Augusta Hall on the beautiful St. Mary’s Campus.  The retreat, themed “Faith in Action” focused on two biblical stories – the woman at the well (John 4:1-42) and the woman caught in adultery (John 7:53-8:11).  Sr. Joy O’Grady broke open these scripture passages for the women and invited them to enter into self-reflection and discussion with the other participants.  The women sang together (with the aid of some very talented musicians from the Sisters of the Holy Cross), ate together (a delicious meal with a complete taco bar) and even did some chair yoga with the aid of instructor Sheila McCarthy.  A special thank you goes out to Sr. Evelyn and our Holy Cross novices Lucy and Luciana for organizing the retreat; and to the Sisters of the Holy Cross for hosting our ladies for such a peaceful and prayer-filled day!
