Fr. Mike took the parish and school staff (some of whom are pictured here) on a retreat at Mater Dolorosa Retreat Center in Sierra Madre. The retreat included time for spiritual reflection as well as time to discuss parish and school plans and schedules for the coming year.
Sister Meredith, O.C.D., from the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles, spoke to us on Mission and hearing God’s call through change. She used examples from the life of their Foundress, Mother Maria Luisa Josefa of the Most Blessed Sacrament, to illustrate a graced response to change, with a focus on Mission.
This was a wonderful opportunity to reflect on our mission to serve Assumption Parish, to work as a team to set goals, to combine schedules, and to craft ways to support each other. Thank you, Fr. Mike!
