Annual Retreat

Each year the nuns of our Order enter into a prolonged period of silence which is called the annual retreat. During this time, an invited preacher gives daily conferences on some aspects of the spiritual life. This year our retreat master is Father Jacob Restrick OP. Father has the experience of having been chaplain of several of our monasteries. He is now stationed at Rosary Hill, which is a home for cancer patients run by the Dominican Sisters of Hawthorne, New York.

A couple of years ago, Father published a novel called "Sister Mary Baruch, O.P." which tells a story of a young woman's conversion and her vocation to the religious life. You might be interested in a review of his book.

Please pray for us as we start our retreat this afternoon and continue through St Dominic's feast day, August 8th.
