The September Association Retreat at Betania II


The American Association’s September retreat was held at Betania II in Medway, MA from the 6th to the 8th. More than 40 Knights, Dames, Auxiliary, and Year of Formation Candidates were in attendance at this weekend retreat, led by Bishop William Murphy, Bishop Emeritus of Rockville Centre.

This retreat focused on the topic, “Witness Today: Steadfast, Holy, Humble”. Bishop Murphy’s insightful discussions included witnessing the faith, its relation to “tuitio fidei”, and the importance of maintaining the link between the Order’s corporal works of mercy. His remarks on “Tuitio Fidei” have inspired the potential addition of a new module for the new Year of Formation online curriculum.

If you were unable to attend this retreat, we hope you can join us at our next Association retreat with Bishop Caggiano in Florida on January 31-February 2, 2020. Save the date!
