Each sumer the Brothers from the Province gather together with 3 ideas: Renew, Reflect and Fellowship.
Our focus this summer has been on great heroes of our faith. St. Therese is just one of many that we have focused on during our time of retreat. She is the patron saint of the mission and yet never left her convent.
She was named a doctor of the church by Pope John Paul II in 1997. She is a patron saint of missions and of florists. ... Her burial site at Lisieux became a place of pilgrimage, and a basilica bearing her name was built there (1929–54).
