Annual Regional Retreat

Sunday, July 15th, 2012

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 Chambers of Jamaica who explored the theme of the upcoming General Chapter “Fired by the Spirit, We dare to Preach”.  In addition to his thoughtful presentations, 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.
