Companions and members gathering at Saint Charles the weekend of October 26 / 27, 2019 for their retreat led this year by Fr. Tim McFarland, C.PP.S. Fr. Tim led the group in a thought provoking and at times energetic conversation about how to discern their role in the New Creation. At Mass on Sunday four Companions made their first covenants with the community: Chris and Ruth Bodyke from the Marywood Companions, Josie Santos from the Columbus Companions and Greg Kulas from the Whiting Companions. In addition, 25 Companions renewed their covenants with the community. Thanks to the community of Saint Charles for their warm and welcoming hospitality.
