A Morning with
Come to learn about a fascinating woman named Conchita by Fr. Ignatius Schweitzer, OP, on the day of her beatification. Conchita (Concepcion) Cabrera de Armida (1862-1937) was a wife, mother of nine, widow, and a founder of a religious community. This mini-retreat will include Mass, the Rosary, a talk on Conchita, and Adoration with interspersed readings from this Mexican mystic's writings on prayer. We'll look to Jesus, whose "life-giving gaze produces saints" (Conchita).

Pilgrimage to Kolkata with Fr. Hyacinth
(Sept 29 - Oct 10)
This combination of a pilgrimage and mission trip to Kolkata, India is a life-changing experience. The trip involves staying close to the Motherhouse (which features St. Mother Teresa’s tomb, her room, an exhibit of her life, and many sisters who knew her); attending daily morning Mass and an evening Holy Hour at the Mother House; and volunteering daily. You will be able to connect and work with volunteers from all over the world and choose which population you will serve daily (children, the elderly, persons with various disabilities or who have been abused, etc.). You will need a valid passport, able to apply for a tourist visa for India, be in good health, and have access to an international travel clinic for immunizations. There will be time on the trip to pray, shop, sightsee, and socialize.
