The 2018 OSL Retreat is scheduled for October 15-18, 2018 at St. Paul of the Cross, 148 Monastery Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15203. Our guest speaker will be Sr. Heather Josselyn-Cranson, our Provincial General and the Sister Margaret William McCarthy Endowed Chair of Music at Regis College in Weston, MA. She will help us explore how “The Music of the Church” can be a force for healing individually and congregationally, and between denominations and traditions.
Parts of the retreat will be drawn from her 2016 book The Reason Why We Sing (published by OSL Publications). Members of the Hymn Society in the United States and Canada, through their newsletter The Stanza, have been invited to attend. The retreat may also celebrate the publication of The Lukan Book of Feasts and Holy Days.
This is the perfect time to set aside some of your continuing education funds, professional business expenses, or personal savings for this retreat. More details and the registration form will be forthcoming in future editions of The Font.
