Associate-Sponsored Retreat in California

From Nov. 11-13, more than 40 Sisters and Associates gathered at Villa Maria del Mar in Santa Cruz for the annual Associate-sponsored retreat. This year the retreat focused on "God's Tender Touch of Mercy." Kathleen Schinhofen, MM., D.Min. was an outstanding presenter and guided participants through the weekend with three sessions: "Mercy for You," "Mercy for the Earth" and "Mercy for All." Retreatants enjoyed ample time for silence and discussion. During Mass, the group welcomed a new Associate, Sally Jo Greig shown here with Sr. Molly Neville. The November weekend by the sea was full of the bright supermoon, days of sunshine, large crashing waves, and the renewal of SNJM bonds from our shared charism.
