Day of recollection 2008:

Our annual summer retreat at the Marist House in Framingham, MA was attended by many from our group. Fr
Albert DiIanni's and Fr George Szal spoke about "Mary, Mother of Our Hope" and "The Laity in Action: The
New Ecclesial Movements", respectively. The retreatants had a wonderful, prayerful experience. Everyone
should think about attending a Marist retreat, as all of us need at least one retreat each year to revigorate our
prayer life.
