Vocation Retreat in "The Windy City"

August 10 -
August 14
I was in Chicago all week to help with a young adult vocation retreat at our convent/ bookcenter. Four young women came to meet the sisters, learn more about religious life, and experience our mission. We began the week with a "contemplative walk" through the city -- we walked around the city two by two, contemplating people and asking ourselves the same question that Bl. James Alberione asked: "Where is humanity going?" We had a few classes (I gave a class on St. Paul!); we also had one day of silent retreat at a beautiful Byzantine Catholic church. On our last night together we went to the Chicago Art Institute. It was great to meet the young women, great to be with our sisters, and great to be in Chicago again!

P.S. Keep in touch! :)
