Good news and more good news

Dear friends,

We have been blessed!

Yes! With great joy, we would like to share with you some good news!

Responding to the call of our time and to Pope Francis on “Care for our Common Home”, we, the Handmaids and the staff of St. Raphaela Center have been reflecting on a document called “Being in This World as in a Great Temple” – a guideline for reflection on the Laudato Si in the light of the Charism of the Handmaids. We have come up with some concrete plans which we want to implement at our Center, beginning with switching our energy source to a renewable one. Beginning March 5th, Saint Raphaela Center will be using 100% wind energy. We want to join you in our efforts to care for Our Common Home!

And more good news...

This year Saint Raphaela Center will be offering for the first time, an Easter Triduum Retreat -“Sharing the Passion and Resurrection of Jesus”, a retreat with Fr. Peter McIsaac, SJ, April 18-21.  This offering is a response to the requests of many who are seeking a contemplative and prayerful way of entering into the mystery of our salvation. This retreat will center on the beauty of Jesus’ gift of himself to us in the liturgies of the Easter Triduum. Since we would like to offer this opportunity for many, this retreat is partially sponsored by the Handmaids. The Masses and service are open to all. You are welcome to join us!

With love,

Sr. Lyan Tri, acj, and all of us at St. Raphaela Center
