I will be on retreat from Sunday evening (1/12) until Saturday morning (1/18). Each year a priest is required to make a retreat. I will admit to you this is a requirement I am happy to keep! Many folks wonder what a priest does on retreat. For the week I will be spending time in quiet prayer and reflection. There will be daily Mass and I will be meeting with a retreat director once a day. But for the most part, I will be in silence, which is a welcome gift. While a retreat is not a vacation it certainly is more restful than one. Please keep me in your prayers this week as I will certainly keep you in mine.
