Fourth Spanish Silent Directed Retreat Weekend at Faulkner, MD

Over the weekend of 16-18 January twenty young Hispanic church leaders participated in a directed silent Ignatian retreat at the Loyola Retreat House in Faulkner, MD. They came from the Archdiocese of Baltimore and the Diocese of Arlington.

This is the fourth such retreat we have offered in as many years, and we are now planning a second level silent weekend retreat for October, 2009 at the same place. Dialogue continues with diocesan leaders to work together for the spiritual formation of our future church leaders.

Retreat leaders were Dr. Dora Tobar, Matilde Álvarez, Frs. Frank Kaminski, SJ, Joe McCloskey, SJ, and Bruce Bavinger, SJ.
