It’s almost August, which means… Lay Dominican retreat with Father Powell!  You don’t have to be a Dominican to come.  For that matter, you don’t even have to be Catholic (although it will be of most interest to Catholics).

Please note that this is by no means a “silent retreat”–that wouldn’t be very Dominican.  ;)  Our retreats are based on the Four Pillars of Dominican Life: Prayer, Study, Community, and Apostolate.

Father Powell is an excellent speaker.  I always get so much out of these annual retreats.  Here is the info.  You might want to check our Lay Dominican group’s site for updates.
