Marianist Creation-centered Retreat in New Mexico

Answering the call of the Laudato Si Action Goal Six, Ecological Spirituality, seventeen Marianist religious (3 Sisters & 14 Brothers) made a week-long retreat at Our Lady of Guadalupe Benedictine Monastery in Pecos, New Mexico during the first week of June. The retreat featured various hikes, activities and prayer experiences in the natural beauty of the southwest. Each evening retreatants were given the opportunity to share particular insights about connections they made between God, nature, and themselves experienced that day.
