Retreat For Busy People
During Advent, a "Retreat for Busy People" was offered to 17 parishioners of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish in Toronto. For this five-day retreat, people continue with their usual schedule and agree to spend approximately 30 minutes in prayer daily and to meet with a Prayer Guide each day. In this way, it is possible to make a retreat without going away to do it.
Team members for the retreat were Sisters Marie McNamara, Grace Sauvé and Virginia Varley, all Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto. God is never outdone by generosity and certainly that was the case for this retreat. Each participant was blessed in terms of the desire they brought to retreat.
For those who are interested, OLPH parish will offer the retreat again during Lent.
