A prayerful experience during the Busy Person’s Retreat
It’s been seven years since we held the first Busy Person’s Retreat at Sacred Heart. This spiritual experience is offered to all faculty, staff, and community members, regardless of their faith tradition, who are looking to learn or deepen their prayer life, or to explore and ask questions about their relationship with God - however they name God.
This year, we had 14 participants who were accompanied by experienced spiritual companions including some of the RSCJ who live next door at the Barat Residence. On Monday, all the participants began the retreat together with an opening prayer, and for the rest of the week they had optional morning prayer and one-on-one sessions with their spiritual companion. It was a great week of reflection and spirituality, and was especially important this year as we live through these challenging times.
Thank you to Sr. Anne-Marie Conn, RSCJ, Sr. Donna Dolan, RSCJ, Barbara McVeigh, Campus Minister Moira Schrader, and to all those who made this year’s retreat possible.
