another retreat

It looks like the unusual connection last year with folks from the Marquard Center, a Franciscan soup kitchen, might bear some fruit after all. Chris called from there today and wants to bring some staff and interns for a come-and-see retreat next weekend.

That doesn't give us a lot of time, but we're very glad they're coming. We'll use Mary's magnificat as the retreat focus again. I hear some of the interns may not be Christians, so that may add a new challenge, but I'm intrigued by the chance to try it.
