Retreat Time




In a few hours, I will leave with one of my classmates to our pre-ordination retreat in Cullman, Alabama.  A lot of people ask the question Cullman, Alabama?  What's there?  That was probably my first thought when we made our first retreat there almost 5 years ago.  It is a beautiful Benedictine monastery and school that was founded in the 19th Century.  The location has truly been a blessing because it allows you to step back and quiet yourself.

And that is what we will be doing on this 5-day silent retreat.  To quiet ourselves; to listen to what our Lord is asking of us; to gain strength for the coming weeks, months and years; and to pray for His guidance. 

So please pray for us.

God Bless You.
