A weekend retreat rejuvenated young Brothers in various stages of initial formation. Brothers from the USA-Toronto Region, along with four international Brothers who are studying at Saint Mary’s University in Winona, MN, gathered with their formators at St. Charles Borromeo Retreat Center in Romeoville, IL, adjacent to Lewis University.
It was their first retreat in the Midwest District, which Brother Stephen Markham coordinated. It offered opportunities for prayer, reflection and fellowship. Midwest District Visitor Brother Larry Schatz provided this account of the gathering.
The next retreat will be held in the fall in the San Francisco District.
