On June 17, 2008, the women religious of the Amarillo Diocese will gather for the one-day Regional Workshop of the CMSWR.
The workshop will be hosted by the School Sisters of Saint Francis (also known as the "Panhandle" Sisters) at their convent in Panhandle, Texas.
This year we will have the great joy of receiving Fr. Thomas Dubay, SM as the main speaker at the workshop.
Father Dubay is a renown author and retreat master. He has dedicated much of his apostolic work to the renewal of religious life by giving retreats and seminars to religious communities around the country. He has authored many books, including: "Fire Within," "Authenticity," "And You Are Christ's," and many more. His most recently published title is "Deep Conversion, Deep Prayer." (2006)
"This magnificent picture of human communities--marriages, consecrated life, parishes and all others--comes about when profound changes and a deep intimacy with God come about. Human ideas and psychological counseling may offer some help, but on the whole. without the gospel therapy, the healing is partial at best: "Love one another as I have loved you." Not something less."
