“I didn’t expect this heat,” is the way one MIW participant responded to the ‘how’s it going check in.’ Thankfully the Retreat House is air conditioned…it’s been warm here along the Shenandoah River.
The ten folks here for this intense week are a varied group coming from as far away as Florida, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and North Carolina! All have enjoyed getting into the rhythm of the house, participating in all the Offices and mass as well as receiving great conferences from the monks. This morning they are at the bakery helping the monks make and package the honey we sell.
The MIW wraps up tomorrow and several members said they would send their reflections, which your humble reporter will gladly post on the web site as soon as they are received.
Men are reminded our next MIWeekend is September 13-15 and there are still five slots available. If interested send email to firstname.lastname@example.org and send $100 deposit.
