Mary Ward Retreat 2018 in Via Nomentana 250, Rome

When the invitation was sent out on “a first come, first served basis“ to members of the IBVM, the Congregatio Jesu and Mary Ward friends around the world to a Mary Ward retreat in Rome, the 30 places were booked up very quickly. The retreat began on Tuesday May 8 and has lasted one week. Each morning the participants meet at 9:00 for a talk given by Patricia Harriss CJ. Then there is time for private prayer. In the afternoon, the participants visit places connected with Mary Ward in Rome. Each evening, Magdalen O’Neill IBVM gives an input on historical documents related to Mary Ward’s life. Pilgrimages to Naples and Perugia, where Mary Ward opened schools in the early 17th century, have also been part of the programme.
The photos show Magdalen O’Neill IBVM, one of the organizers, checking her list to ensure that all the participants are present to set off on the pilgrimage to Mary Ward places round Rome in the afternoon, and some of the retreat participants. (text and photos/eka)
