We were excited to be a part of this year’s Bilingual Discernment Retreat hosted by the Diocese of Tucson on Saturday, March 16.
The day-long event offered prayer, quiet reflection and exploration to discern more about God’s plan in the lives of the 16 women who attended.
Comments shared by attendees included, “What I liked most about this retreat was that it helped me open my eyes more and follow my dreams with the help of God;” “The call to open our hearts to the calling of the Lord means a lot;” and “This experience has been a day to remember. It has helped me see another life that I never really learned about.”
Benedictine Sister Lupita Barajas, OSB, vocation director at our Tucson monastery who helped plan the event, shared her gratitude to fellow religious Sisters who helped coordinate the event: Sister Gladys Echenique, OP, Sister Lucy Nigh, SSND, Sister Eileen Mahoney, CSA, Sister Judy Bourg, SSND, Sister Graciela Garcia, CFMM, Sister Christine Garcia, SSND, Sister Rosemary Sampon, MMS and Sister Ellen Pachmayer, OSF.
