Sisters Spring Retreat focuses on prayer and forgiveness

The Ursuline Sisters’ Spring Retreat the week of March 4-8, 2024, brought the return of Marie Dennis to the Motherhouse, a noted nonviolence expert sharing her thoughts on “Diving Into a Sea of Prayer.”

Dennis is senior director of the Catholic Nonviolence Initiative, a program of Pax Christi International, where she was co-director from 2007-19. She worked for Maryknoll Missioners for 23 years, has published seven books, and in 2016 was named National Catholic Reporter’s Person of the Year.

Dennis, a laywoman who lives in the Assisi Community in Washington, D.C. – where Sister Dianna Ortiz lived – presented the Summer Retreat in 2023. This week she gathered with the Sisters in the Rainbow Room of Saint Joseph Villa to talk about forgiveness. Here are some photos from March 4.
