Oct. 21-23 Wells Beach Retreat of Beverly Chapter of Pax Christi led Brayton Shanley after reading his book: The Many Sides of Peace

by Jane Cadarettewells-me1 Our weekend turned out to be an intimate gathering of 6 counting our leader. Our days were filled with prayer, silence, meditation, presentation, reflecting and sharing our thoughts and feelings in discussion.  We attended Mass at the Holy Spirit Church on Sat. afternoon at 4 p.m.  (It was known as St. Mary’s Church before the merger of three parishes.) It was packed with people. Mary Kate arrived on Sat. morning and stayed through Sunday. Those who know Mary Kate will not find it hard to believe that song accompanied her and became an integral part of our days.
