Ten ladies of our parish were able to attend at Saint Scholastica Monastery of Benedictine Sisters in Fort Smith, Arkansas. The theme of the retreat was "The Circle of Life: Journey through the Seasons." It was a combination of retreat talks, prayer and/or time for contemplation, silence during parts of the retreat, fellowship and Sunday morning Mass in the beautiful chapel at the Monastery.

The weekend retreat was led by speakers Joyce Rupp, an award-winning author and a much sought after retreat speaker and Sister Macrina Wiederkehr, who is a Benedictine Sister at Saint Scholastica, a well-known author and retreat director.
