Associates and Sisters of Bon Secours gathered the weekend of September 5-7, 2014, for the annual Associate Retreat, at the Retreat and Conference Center of Bon Secours, in Marriottsville, MD.
Our facilitator was Fr. Nicholas Amato, priest of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, an Associate of Mepkin Abbey in South Carolina, and a popular speaker on the subject of contemplative prayer. He led the group through numerous experiences of prayer in the contemplative tradition, and the weekend was a graced event.
Associates use this annual event to catch up with one another, as well, as they come from nine different locations around the United States. It is a celebration of ongoing community and the Bon Secours spirit.
