Last week we had our yearly retreat. Our retreat director was Sr. Sarah from our Irish house Glencairn. Glencairn is our grandmother house. They founded Wrentham Abbey in Massachusetts who founded us.
Sr. Sarah used Celtic spirituality as the topic for the retreat. We learned a lot and were inspired by the history and holiness of the monks and nuns of Celtic monasticism.
We gifted Sr. Sarah with a pair of overalls and made her an honorary Iowan.
