Annual Regional Retreat

Dominican Sisters of the Trinidad Region of the Congregation of St. Catherine of Siena gathered in Mayaro for seven days of Retreat from July 8-14, 2012.  The Retreat was preached by Fr.

Don invited Sisters to enter into different methods of prayer and then to share the fruits of contemplation in small groups.  He also challenged each person to listen attentively to the testimonies and stories of the elderly Sisters which often contained much wisdom.

The Dominican Sisters thank Fr. Don for preaching our retreat 2012.  May Almighty God bless him abundantly.
