A retreatant's testimony

September 1, 2014

I attend the first retreat offered here in St. Louis, requesting the same day it was in our bulletin. It was SUCH a blessing for me because it was held only 27 miles from St. Mary's Assumption Church (my parish since 2007), instead of a very long distance to Los Gatos, Phoenix & Ridgefield. As I said before, this was SUCH a blessing for all of us.

The Women's 3-day retreat started July 13, ending July 15th. This time and presentation exceeded my expectation in every way, and I pray we will see more retreats in the future, hopefully held at the same location: the Sojurn Retreat Center in Dittner, MO. It's a lovely tree-filled site which is a perfect background for meditation, prayer and inner peace our hungry souls seek.

Thank you for the opportunity to attend such a lovely retreat here in St. Louis.

Many thanks to Fr. Young's excellent presentation and his spiritual guidance to his flock. Bless the Society in all its love and faithfulness.

Yours truly,
