Members of the Subpriory of Our Lady of Lourdes, including members in Obedience and Professed Knights from both the American and Federal Associations, gathered at the Malvern Retreat House in Pennsylvania for their 11th Annual Retreat over the first weekend in June. This year’s retreat was attended by 64 Knight and Dames, as well as members of both Associations beginning or ending their Year of Formation to make their Promise of Obedience.
The retreat master was Msgr. James Watkins of the Federal Association, assisted by homilies Fr. Eric Hollas of the Western Association, Fr. Joseph Cavoto of the American Association, and Rev. Dr. Jeffrey Trexler, Executive Director of the American Association. Attendees were overjoyed to welcome Dr. Trexler, who spoke of his delight in donning the vestments of an American Association deacon once again in his first homily since November 2017.
