Lucky 13 & the 30-day Retreat

Please pray for our New Orleans province novices (pictured above). The seven second-year men are off, each for six-week visits, to one of our high schools.

The six first-year men begin the 30-day silent retreat, following the Spiritual Exercises, today. Please pray especially for them. This is one of the most special and grace-filled, but also the one of the most challenging times of a Jesuit's life.

Could you provide us with names? I'd like my CCD students to pray for them.

a 30 day silent retreat?!?!?! That is amazing! (Having a hard time imagining even a weekend, never mind a month, of silence.)

Will keep them all in my prayers.

30 days of silence! Better them than me, I thought it was going to take duct tape to make it for five.

I believe California Province is just entering into their retreat right now, and Oregon starts our disposition days on Oct. 30, ending the retreat on Dec. 3, the Feast of St. Francis Xavier, our house patron.

Of course I'm praying for them. Could really use a silent retreat myself...

I was wrong about CalProv, they start on Oct. 31.
