Deacons Attend Annual Retreat

Categories: Diaconate Updates & News

Twenty-eight deacons from the diocese of St. Cloud attended the annual Men’s Retreat at the Abbey of the Hills Retreat Center in Marvin, SD from June 23-26.  Fr. Tom Hillenbrand, the former Abbot of the Abbey was the retreat master.  His focus was on the importance of silence in one’s prayer life.  In additions to prayer, worship and reflection, the deacons enjoyed the fellowship and friendship of one another during the “non-silent” times.
