Hispanic Youth and Young Adult Leader Retreat, Sparks, MD
On April 21-22, 2007 some 15 Spanish speaking youth and young adult leaders met for a weekend of prayer, reflection, rest and bonding among themselves at the Msgr. O'Dyer Retreat House in Sparks, MD. Led by Ms. Georgina Vaca, of the Youth and Young Adult Department of the Archdiocese of Baltimore and Fr. Charles McDonnell, C.S.S.R., and me, they had the opportunity to learn a number of prayer forms and styles which could help them grow in their own spiritual lives, as well as share with their parish groups.This is one more important step in the process of helping provide these leaders with tools and skills for their own use, and to help others grow in familiarity and friendship with God.
