From Oblate Victor Kralisz:
Quite a bit of planning has already gone into this year’s October Retreat. Much is left to be done. But so that you can begin to make your plans, this early information will prove helpful:
1. Because of the way the calendar works, Columbus Day/Thanksgiving moves up a week this year and so for us to keep to our traditional week after Columbus weekend, our dates will be October 17th – 20th.
2. In response to many comments received after last Fall’s retreat, this year’s retreat will begin on Thursday evening the 17th for greeting and orientation and extend through Sunday the 20th. This will then be truly a full 2-day retreat. If you’ve already made a reservation, you can change it with Br. Bruno through email@example.com.
Lots of details on pricing and logistics still have to be worked out. We’re working on some interesting interactive and contemplative ideas for programs.
We all owe a debt of gratitude to Penny Allen for her work on this over the past six years. Since she has many new commitments this year, I hope to be able to take up the cause. Please let me know if there is someone who is not on this list who should be informed. Eve Davila will be helping to keep the Oblates tab on the Monastery website up to date on Retreat news.
