Annual Retreat at Saint Augustine Priory, Oxnard, California


Annual Retreat at Saint Augustine Priory, Oxnard, California
13-06-2017 Estados Unidos
From May 29 to June 2, 2017, 43 friars of the Order of the Augustinian Recollects in the United States celebrated five days of spiritual retreat, fraternal experiences and enforcement of the communion, guided by the father Michael DiGregorio (OSA).
Forty-three Augustinian Recollect Friars gathered at St. Augustine Priory in Oxnard, California, on the afternoon of May 29, 2017, to begin their annual five-day retreat.

Of the friars present, six were members of Saint Nicholas of Tolentine Province and the rest from Saint Augustine Province, representing another step toward unification of the two provinces, mandated by the General Chapter of 2016, and enforced by the Commission on the unification of both provinces.

The Priory extended its traditional hospitality to the retreatants, making everyone feel welcome, well cared for, and well fed! The retreat director, Fr. Michael DiGregorio, is actually prior provincial of the Villanova (Eastern) Province of the Order of Saint Augustine.

Fr. DiGregorio offered a morning and afternoon conference each day and a question-and-answer session in the evenings; he also preached each day at Mass.

The conferences centered on the Rule of St. Augustine, and challenged all those present to take a fresh look at this central document of Augustinianism, to continue to grow in self-awareness, and to experience anew the joy of living together in community as brothers who are united in the common life and in service to the Church.
