Companions gathered at San Pedro Retreat Center on Feb 22 and 23 for the last Companion Retreat for this year. Fr. Tim McFarland shared insights about how the role of the laity has changed in the Church and led discussions about hopes for the future. At the conclusion of the retreat at the closing liturgy, Companions renewed their covenants. Florence Carrigan from Lake Mary made her first covenant with the community.

Thanks to Fr. Garry Richmeier, Fr. Timothy Armbruster and Fr. Tim McFarland for leading our retreats throughout the year. They all shared enlightening reflections and facilitated discussions about the future of Companions.
