Spiritual Retreat this weekend

Due to a last minute change of plans, it was not possible for Abbess Aemiliane to be with us for our retreat next weekend. Fr. Gerasim (Eliel), whom many of you have met, has agreed to step in and speak on the same topics. Fr. Gerasim has been with us before, and will no doubt give a spiritually uplifting retreat. If you were planning on joining us from outside of the parish, please feel welcome. The full schedule of the retreat is as follows:
