May 2021 Retreat
Due to Covid restrictions, there has been some uncertainty
whether the retreat would be residential (Mt. Mary) or virtual,
hence the delay in posting details and opening registration.
Dates are confirmed: Sunday, May 2 to Saturday, May 8, if
residential (Mt. Mary), or Friday, April 30 to Saturday May
8, if daily life/on-line retreat.
A decision will be made by the end of March,
and registration will open at that time.
