Retreat at Mississauga August 14-18

For a full five days 25 Dehonians from both Canada and the United States listened, reflected, shared with another person and opened up in a small group what it is that binds us together spiritually. The reflections by Fr. Jim Schroeder, David Schimmel and Fr. John van den Hengel, the organizers of the retreat, helped that participants to reconnect with the spiritual life of Fr. Dehon and its current application. It was good to return to what in the last 50 years, since the chapters of renewal of 1973 and 1979, has come to us in the Rule of Life. As one of the participants said, °It feels as if I am now finally able to understand and enter into what we were given in the Rule of Life. Why has it taken me 50 years to appreciate and grasp what some saw way back then?” The retreat ended on Friday evening, August 18. The next retreat will be in given in Racine, WI, in May 2018.
