From May 7-11, SCJs from Canada and the United States gathered at the Siena Center in Racine, WI, for the second of two Dehonian Retreats titled “Open Hearts / Cœur Ouverts.” The retreats were the result of requests for a greater Dehonian content to our gatherings. The first retreat, prepared by Fr. Jim Schroeder, Mr. David Schimmel and Fr. John van den Hengel was held in Mississauga in August, 2017. The retreats were initiated by the North American councils during one of their joint meetings and focus on five themes from Dehonian Spirituality: God’s love, union with Christ, oblation, reparation and social spirituality. A third retreat will be held in August for those in formation.
