Another Father/Son Retreat at St. Benedict Abbey in Still River, MA

"If our children are going to hear God's true calling for [each of] them, they must be exposed to different vocations in the Catholic Church, including the religious life. Here is a rare opportunity for you to give your 14- to 17-year-old son exposure to just that." - Kathleen Laplante, this entry

Here is a note from one of the monks, Fr. Marc Crilly, OSB, who is also a priest.

Thanks to your support and prayers, our last Father/son weekend retreat [August 12-14] was a great success. It was so successful, in fact, that we are trying to get another one going for next month, October 21-23. If you know of any young man, 14 or older, who might be interested in such a retreat, could you please pass on this information?  ...he can reach our Vocations Director, Fr. Anthony, at   And could you please continue to pray for vocations to our community? Thanks again so much.

God bless.

Fr. Marc
