Last week, from July 5th
through the 8th our community held its annual
retreat. The director for the event was the
Dominican priest, Fr. Nicholas Monco, O.P. who also
blessed us with his presence and wisdom for the
retreat last year. The topic for this year was
The Beatitudes. During his sessions with us, Fr.
Monco led us in an exploration of each beatitude which
essentially illustrated aspects of the life of Christ
for us to imitate. Each highlighted a
disposition of heart that carries with it a promise
that can be experienced in this life as well as the
next. Once again, we are very grateful for Fr.
Monco’s kindness, reflections and spiritual guidance
in making this year’s retreat so memorable!
