This was the first time the group ever had a retreat master that was not a priest. They took a chance with having this deacon as the retreat master and it is my hope that they were spiritually fed during the course of the three days.
We had to find a priest to offer Mass and the Sacrament of Penance. This also turned out to be quite a blessing. We contacted a local priest who was in a parish not far from the location of the retreat center. Fr. Martino--WOW! You touched our lives in a profound way. Thank you for giving of yourself so generously to us.
The goodness of God never ceases to amaze me.
