  1. Hi Katie,
    I am trying to put a spiritual retreat together during our spring break, March 21-24. We will be going to the Conception Abbey for the retreat. Are there other materials available to help us with the retreat? I know I have access to the spiritual formation info and I will include that in the retreat but I didn’t know if there was anything else available. Thanks, Trish Heath

  2. I would like information on the retreat on October 2016. Is it just for musicians? May also have the information for preparation on a spiritual pilgrimage? The one that helps you prepare and learn the history of Kirkland.
