Several members of the Ladies of Charity at St. John’s University spent All Saint’s Day sharing stories, friendship and spirituality at a retreat held on the Oakdale campus.
Spiritual Director, Fr. Michael Whalen , C.M. Celebrated mass, and Spirituality Committee Chair, Dr. Marilyn Martone, offered reflections on scriptures and sacred writing surrounding the vocation of women in their various roles as daughters, sisters, mothers, wives, educators and Church members. The ladies also reflected, individually and as a group, on the virtues of Humility, Simplicity and Charity and the role of these virtues in our continuing formation as a Chapter.
Next year’s Retreat will also be held on All Saint’s Day. Details are being developed.
