A weekend of great joy for the Augustinian Recollect Youth (ARY)
27-11-2017 Estados Unidos
This past 18th and 19th of November two retreats were carried out at the same time. The retreat is called “restless heart”, and forms part of the beginning of the evangelization process which ends with the forming of small ARY communities.
Firstly, in the city of Chihuahua, twelve young people from the group of Saint Posidio in the Milan Stage, lived what is to be their second retreat with the Augustinian Recollect Youth (ARY). The previous year they had participated in the retreat “Discovering hearts” before receiving the sacrament of Confirmation.

The retreat was organized by Karla Ramos, who guides the group of Saint Posidio, and by Jacqueline Guevara and Karla Olivas, members of the ARY Council. In terms of logistics, talks, activities and meals more than twenty-five people from the groups and communities of ARY Chihuahua were involved. Fray Douglas Beard, the religious assessor for the ARY in the Northern Zone of Mexico presided over all the various celebrations.

Then there was the first retreat of ARY on American soil, with the participation of twenty-seven young people from the parish of San Antonio in Anthony, New Mexico. Responding to the invitation of Rafael Castillo, Augustinian Recollect and Prior and Parish Priest of the community, a group of six young people from JAR Chihuahua undertook a journey of about four hundred kilometers in order to share their experiences.

They also counted on the participation of fray Cristino Rubio, Augustinian Recollect who lives in Union City, New Jersey, and who is at the moment responsible for the pastoral work with young people and vocations for the Order in the United States. Significantly, they counted on the help of four married couples from the Parish who have agreed to collaborate in the formation of the young people.

In both places, the fraternity, joy and deepening of the spiritual life were part of discovering Christ and their brothers, all in the style of Saint Augustine and the Augustinian Recollection.
