Community Retreat: “In the Steps of Chaminade”

In keeping with the theme, “In the Steps of Chaminade,” the brothers of Casa María packed their bags for a weekend at the Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa Retreat Center on Nov. 27-29 to tour three significant places in the life of Blessed Chaminade: Verdelaise, Zaragoza and Bordeaux.

By watching compilations of video footage of those places taken by Brother Michael Sullivan while on sabbattical in 2007-08, the brothers made virtual pilgrimages to each location, pausing to reflect on the graces that Chaminade received there and how those intersect with their lives today.

The weekend of the retreat, which also marked the beginning of the new liturgical year, enabled the brothers to celebrate the start of Advent in a setting of prayer and contemplation.

  1. What a creative theme for a retreat with our Blessed Founder and to kick start the new Church year. Keep us in your prayers as we will be on retreat this coming weekend. Have a blessed Advent.
