Retreat for the Sisters of the Western, Province at OLV Center

Sister Louise Swanston, one of our SSMNs from Liverpool, England, gave a retreat to the Sisters of the Western, Province at OLV Center from July 11 to July 17.  The topic was “Embracing Today and Facing Tomorrow with Creative Hope.”  Among the topics covered, she stressed: God’s beauty and creativity; prayer and contemplation; opening doors and dialoguing with different people and ideas; our role in faith development;  and our vision of how we can support Pope Francis as he leads the Church in the 21st century.  We were blessed by having many of our Oblates and Associates with us during this week of grace and renewal, as well as Sr. Patricia Brown from our Eastern Province.
